Meet the team
I have been a practice partner at Shrewsbury Vets4Pets since 2007. I love working at the surgery and getting to know all our patients, assisted by our friendly and caring team of colleagues. I enjoy the variety of being a vet but I have a special interest in orthopaedics and cardiology. Outside of work I am kept busy running our small farm with my wife and 3 boys. We currently have 4 cats, 2 dogs, lots of sheep, cows, pigs and chickens.
My favorite animal is hard to choose but probably cats. I seem to be building up a collection of different colors... So far I have a tabby, a big black cat, a small black cat, a ginger boy, and a very pretty ginger and white girl. You can never have too many cats, and I don't have a black & white one yet...
As well as my cats, I also have 2 collies - Timmy and Kiera. Plus we keep sheep, cows, pigs, chickens and turkeys on our small holding.
I love working for vets4Pets because it means I get to know some of the pets, and their owners, who we see regularly. It's always nice to see the dogs who have been coming here since puppies, pulling their owners across the car park as they're so keen to come and visit us! (perhaps the jar of biscuits at reception has something to do with that!)
I qualified from RVC London in 1990. I have worked in small animal practices in the South of England until moving to Wales 12 years ago. More recently I have joined Vets4Pets and I am delighted to be part of such as great dedicated and supportive team – everyone equally passionate about providing the best possible care for pets.
Like most vets I have had a good variety of fury and feathered members of the family but my favourite is my ex-feral cat Sooty who has grown to love his cuddles. Outside of work I enjoy gardening, playing violin and being an administrator for Montgomery Youth Music Charity.
My favorite animal is really hard to choose, but I think my absolute favorite has to be dogs. When I was 13 I had a real bond with my friend's Jack Russel, Ivy, and it was a combination of her and my love of all the animals at the riding stables where I spent my weekends and holidays, that made me want to be a vet. I also love cows, sheep, horses, and cats!
At home I have a four-year-old whippet, Rupert, who was bred by a nurse I used to work with. He's a joy, and the perfect dog for me!
The best thing about working for Vets4Pets is the three C's. Lovely Colleagues, Clients, and high standard of Care!
I have worked in both New Zealand and South East England so have seen a nice variety of pets. I am definitely a dog person but love our feline friends as well. We are currently pet-less but on the look out for a puppy - no doubt it'll only be a matter of time before one catches my eye that comes into the vets!
Outside of work I can be found both running after my toddler or actual running, or playing violin in Shrewsbury Symphony Orchestra.
Vets4Pets Shrewsbury is a lovely caring team of people. They're a wonderful fun bunch of colleagues to work with and it's a pleasure to come to work!
I started at Vet4Pets 10 years ago, working as an Animal Nursing Assistant and Receptionist, before starting my training to become a Registered Veterinary Nurse. Since qualifying I have also become practice partner alongside Jonathan. On any give day you could see me on reception, in clinics, in theatre or in the office - I enjoy all my varied roles responsibilities!
I work here because I love animals.... I have 2 dogs, one cat and am super excited about getting a hamster once my children are a little older and long term I would love to have some chickens and goats.
I am really grateful for the wonderful people I work with and for the lovely clients who chose to come to see us here. They make coming to work a pleasure.
I have been working in the veterinary industry since 2011 and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2013. I have worked in two other small animal practices including a busy veterinary hospital where I gained lots of valuable experience.
I joined the team at Vets4Pets Shrewsbury in May 2017, and was quickly promoted to Head Veterinary Nurse. Last year I completed an additional qualification – a certificate in Emergency and Critical Care, which has enabled me to extend my skills and knowledge and help pass on my knowledge to the student veterinary nurses.
I am a clinical coach to two of the students in practice which involves mentoring them through their nurses training. I love teaching the students new skills and seeing them progress. My favorite part of my job is theatre work and anaesthesia.
Outside of work I have a rescue labrador who I love taking out for long walks in the countryside. I love my job here at Vets4Pets and enjoy looking forward to coming to work to see what the day will bring
In my spare time, I love to read, especially crime novels as I love a good twist in a story!
I have also started to teach myself to cook which I have found I really enjoy. I have 4 Poodles, one standard poodle Ted, and 3 Miniature poodles Vinnie, Aero and Cookie! They all have their own unique personalities, but one thing they all have in common is that they all love to go swimming!
Before I started working for vet4pets I was a client for many years and I was always so impressed by how caring and friendly the team was! Now as an employee of Vets4Pets I love the fact that the team are so close and friendly, also the team always all work together to achieve the best outcome for their patients
I qualified in August 2020 as an RVN and I absolutely love my job. I love all aspects of the job and taking care of pets is a passion of mine. My favourite part of nursing is emergency and critical care. I have a Lurcher called Barney and two cats called Oscar and Bree who love to cause mischief at home. In my spare time I like to go for walks and spend time with family and friends.
I have worked for vets4pets for 3 years, and prior to that I was a VCA at a mixed animal practice in mid Wales. I am due to sit my final practical exams in March, after which I will hopefully become an RVN.
I recently joined the practice & have relished every moment so far on my journey to qualify as a Registered Veterinary Nurse. At home, my Labradoodle Cadbury keeps me busy ... he's never far from mischief! Our favourite place to be is the Cornish coast (throwing many a tennis ball) with the sand in our toes.
I have worked at Vets4Pets for several years and enjoy meeting and talking to both existing and new clients alike and of course seeing their gorgeous pets
When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, taking bolt on exciting adventures - especially in the rain, we love the puddles. And finally being at home watching Disney films is where I’m at my happiest.
