Client Care Advisor

I joined the team back in March as a CCA and very soon I am going to be furthering my career and starting vet school. Yes I am studying to be a vet!

I will be here at least 3 day a week so you will still see me.

At home I own a bearded dragon and I named him cowboy, who is just growing every day! I might need to cut down on him so much lettuce!

For me being at the practise the most rewarding aspect of the job is seeing the improvements our regular patients make at each visit. Seeing them regain the spark and character is just Priceless!!
