Meet the team
Hello! I graduated in 2010 from the University of Pretoria in South Africa and I've been working in private practice in the UK since 2011.
I've been owned by a black cat called Salem ever since. Although I was born in the UK I'm actually West African and my love for animals originates from there. I also love dancing, singing, watching Japanese animations and reading.
I have been in practice since 2008 and qualified in 2013 as a Registered Veterinary Nurse. I joined the team here at Walkden in 2016 and became a Joint Venture Partner in 2017. Before starting here I didn’t have any pets of my own, just a family cat and two dogs. However this all changed when our Practice Mascot Bambi decided to retire and move in with my partner and I.
Outside of work I enjoy baking; chocolate brownies being my speciality. I enjoy reading, and I’m a big fan of fantasy novels in particular, my favourite being The Lord Of The Rings. In 2016 and 2017 I got to fulfil my dream of visiting the real Middle Earth on two trips to New Zealand. I’m very much a geek and enjoy hosting geeky boardgame nights with friends. I have also taken up Archery and can often be found with a bow in my hand, whether that be in online computer games, or at my archery club practicing my aim.
I am a registered veterinary nurse and have recently joined the Vets4Pets Walkden team. Following 8+ years of nursing, I have experience with many species of animals including dogs, cats and exotics.
I have two dogs of my own named Holly and Scamp. Holly being the Labrador and scamp being a Crossbreed. I enjoy travelling and socialise with friends in my spare time.
I have always loved animals and being around them, ever since I was a little girl I have grown up with dogs, cats and rabbits! My furry family members at the moment include my first own puppy/little ball of fluff, Ellie the Cavapoo, with my fiancé Lucy. And our latest addition, Izzie the Cockapoo! Our extended family also includes Tilly & Milly the kitty cats ... crazy little balls of fur!
Outside of work I like to spend time with my family & friends, going on nice hot sunny holiday’s, music concerts/festivals and trying to convince Lucy to let me have more fur babies!
Hello, my name is Leah and I’m a Client Care Advisor at Vets4Pets Walkden. There’s nothing I love more in the world than animals. I’m also very passionate about saving the environment. I always look forward to meeting new people and socialising! I love a good book to read and I enjoy exploring new places to walk my three dogs!
I’ve always been animal obsessed and have grown up surrounded by all sorts of different pets that I had begged my parents for when I was younger. My current pets are my slightly crazy Border Collie, Star, and my extremely greedy guinea pig, Holly! I definitely have plans for more pets, I’d have a garden full of guinea pigs if I could!
In my spare time, I enjoy going out running with Star as I’m currently training for a half marathon, going to the gym and persuading my boyfriend to let me book our next holiday!
