I have been in the Veterinary sector for 5 years and still each day is very different. I began my journey in Thurrock Vets4Pets in February 2021, I love my job and I really enjoy the medical side of the profession, watching patients get better is very rewarding. In the future I would like to extend my qualifications and persue a medical nursing certificate. My favourite animals are Whippets, Italian Greyhouds and I do have a soft spot for small furries.

I started my journey at Vets4Pets Thurrock in August 2021 after completing my BSc (Hons) in Veterinary Nursing Science at Hartpury University in July 2021 graduating as a Registered Veterinary Nurse. 

 

I have worked in the veterinary industry for the past 6 years, predominately working with British wildlife. Inpatient nursing is such a rewarding part of my job which I love so much, seeing patients getting better with our care, nothing quite beats it. I love the surgical aspect of my job and in the future would love to pursue certificates to expand my education in this area! I'd also love to become a clinical coach in the future. My favourite breeds are bull breeds and rottweilers! 

 

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my friends, partner, family and own dogs and cats as well as baking and cooking lots!

Having had a love for animals ever since i was young I always hoped I would be able to work alongside them and give them the best care possible which I’m really enjoying being able to do. I joined Vets4Pets in May 2021 and I’m looking forward to becoming a Student nurse towards the end of this year and to eventually progress into being a fully qualified Veterinary Nurse in the future. In my free time I’m either socialising with friends or at home painting whilst trying to keep my curious black and white cat away from the paint!

I joined Vets4pets as a full time receptionist in April 2019. The animal industry is a big interest of mine and always has been since I was young. It’s truly fascinating seeing so many different animals on a day-to-day basis that each have their own personalities, just like humans. I’m currently doing an Animal Care Level 2 and Animal Behaviour Level 3 online course and aspire to learn and progress into becoming a veterinary nurse. I have a gorgeous cat named Samson and he’s the funniest cat you’ll ever meet! He’s a cheeky monkey, but what’s the point in having a pet if they’re not a little cheeky?

I am a vet by profession and have decided to pursue my career as a practice manager. I qualified as a vet in the year 2000 and since then worked as a vet for short duration in a small animal clinic and for 5 years in an equine hospital. I've completed my graduate certificate in business management and professional key skills in the year 2010 and I'm a certificate holder of European School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies. I'm excited to be a part of the team at Vets4Pets Thurrock and looking forward to coming back to work after taking a long break to raise the kids. My favourite pet is a cat and outside work I'm interested in cooking, movies, music and spending time with my husband and kids.

I joined Vets4Pets as a part time receptionist in March 2015. I have never worked within in the veterinary industry before but I have a huge passion for animals and to work with animals of all varieties is an honour and a privilege. I love all animals but I have a special affection for Siamese and Oriental Cats. I got married in July 2018 and when I am not at work, I am mum to two wonderful teenage girls, who keep me very busy. We rescued an older cat from this Practice who came in for a dental and had no permanent home, so I took her home in time for Christmas which made my girls very happy. We called her Phoenix and they are very good with her, giving her her flea and worm treatment on a regular basis. I think it’s very valuable for children to learn the importance of animal welfare, and the responsibility of how to keep an animal happy and healthy.

Client Care Advisor

I’ve recently joined the Thurrock practice on reception.  I have worked within the veterinary world for the past six years and I have loved meeting all the pets and their owners. 

I have always loved animals and three little Bichon Frise dogs were a massive part of my life. After losing these three dogs to old age (one of my boys was almost 18 years old) I vowed never to have another dog. 

I spent time pet sitting family and friends dogs and during lockdown of 2020, I fostered an abandoned puppy who was found dumped in a box with his litter mates. I saw him go from skinny and shy to this bounding full of life, healthy and happy puppy... I failed at fostering him and he became officially adopted three months later!!!
