Meet the team
I qualified in 2001 at Liverpool University and have worked in North Wales & Greater Manchester. My heart is in North Wales so opening a practice in Wrexham was the perfect opportunity for me. I have enjoyed growing the business since opening in 2013 and take pride in the expertise and quality of service we are able to offer our clients. I am passionate about my job as a vet and am a keen surgeon. I also have an interest in veterinary acupuncture. I take pride in my job and enjoy building good relationships with clients and their pets. Outside of work I am busy with my family which consists of 2 dogs, 2 cats, a peregrine falcon, a husband and a daughter. I am an avid road cyclist and runner and I love to ski - although badly!
I qualified in Spain before working in the UK. I love my job as a small animal vet and all aspects of the job. I like to build bonds with the animals and clients, and I entertain my colleagues with my humour daily.
I live in the heart of mid Wales and commute daily. When I am not working I am climbing, hiking and having adventures in the mountains. I also have an interest in languages and am currently learning to speak French.
