I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College London (RVC) in 2019 and joined the Wantage team permanently in March 2021. I have a particular passion for surgery. Outside of work, I enjoy attending rock concerts, theatre shows and cinema screenings. I also play guitar, am a member of a choir and like to unwind by reading, cooking and bullet journaling. I have a tabby and white cat named Lennon, who first arrived at the practice as a stray and needed surgery to fix his dislocated hip. He’s made an excellent recovery and has been keeping my partner Chris and I on our toes ever since!

I originally joined Danetree in 1987 as a trainee veterinary nurse.

After a slightly varied career, I began working for Day and Partners (which very shortly changed to Danetree Veterinary Surgeons) in 1995. I qualified as a veterinary nurse from Berkshire College of Agriculture in 1998. I left Danetree in 2001 and took two years out on maternity leave, returning as a part-time receptionist in 2003. In practice I deal with all the insurance claims so you'll usually find me surrounded by a pile of paper work!

Excellent empathetic care, when we needed an urgent appointment as we were very worried about our Corgi. Caring attention for the vet, who really listened and understood the issues, examined thoroughly and recommended next steps for diagnosis. Great service!

Would leave 0 stars if possible. The vet Nimmi is nothing more than a Google practitioner for animals. I called up first thing this morning about our pups separation anxiety, to be given an appointment with Nimmi, who in her words ‘only studied one term of separation anxiety at uni 15 years ago’ and that she would have to do some research and call us back. We paid £53 for this, to be told she had to Google it…do you idiots not think we have not already done that? Absolutely APPALLED at this shocking service. When I called up describing our pups ‘behavioural issues’ they should have appointed us a vet that had experience in this. Time to send your vets back to uni. 👍

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank the team at Medivet Wantage for such kind compassionate care. I know that as an owner end of life care is not the subject we want to think about but under the circumstances this team has been fantastic. With many supportive phone calls and even a home visit on the day. Daniel gave my poor boy the most calm and peaceful goodbye. Not only did I feel that my dog was looked after but myself also. I can only thank the team for their exceptional care at one of the most difficult times.

*Based on average saving for dogs and cats on the Medivet Healthcare Plan over a 12 month period at this practice. This saving excludes the additional savings benefits that are available to these pets on plan (e.g. 15% off dental procedures & 10% off vet care and medication and some food). Prices correct February 2024.
