I have been working in practice since leaving school and first qualified as an Animal Nursing Assistant in 2009, going on to qualify as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in September 2013. I have also completed a certificate in Feline Nursing and finished this in September 2016.
I love all aspects of nursing, however my main interests are surgery and inpatient care.

I have worked in the veterinary industry since 2009 in various roles before completing the veterinary nurse diploma and qualifying as an RVN in 2019.
I have always had a passion for animals and have a keen interest in canine behaviour since rescuing my own dog who is fear reactive.
When I am not working you will most likely find me walking or canicross running through the woods/countryside with my sidekick Frankenstein the Doberman.

Having completed lots of work experience in the Veterinary industry, I decided that this was the career for me. I enjoy helping and handling different animals and getting to know each one individually.
In my spare time I attend martial arts classes and help to coach any new students, occasionally taking over the class and teaching new techniques to the younger students. I enjoy walks with my springer spaniel, Woody who I love to spoil and cuddle.
Joined the team: 2016
I joined the company in November 2013 at Companion Care Vets Portsmouth,
I then transferred to Waterlooville Vets4Pets in 2016 when the surgery opened and I became the Reception Manager.
I have 30 years customer service experience which stands me in good stead for the diversity of this role.
I am married with two teenage children and a border collie called Loki, who the kids call my favourite child.

Before joining our reception team, Jackie previously had a career in IT Management. Having been a client since the practice opened, Jackie was always impressed how well her cats Dexter & Daisy were looked after when she visited, and how friendly the team were. She was absolutely thrilled to be given the opportunity to join the team. In Jackie's spare time she loves to spoil her 2 cats, attend pilates classes and go to live gigs.
