I grew up in Kent and qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in London in 2012. I joined this practice shortly afterwards and have continued to pursue my interest in advanced dentistry ever since. At home I have my two cats, Optimus and Furiosa, who enjoy living in the countryside as much as I do.

After working as an RVN for two years I decided I wanted to take the next step to be a qualified vet. After a few years experience in other practices I joined this practice in September 2022, which is great as I live locally with my 4 cats and baby boy.

I studied and qualified as an RVN at the practice back in 2019. I was more than happy to move up to the area from Northamptonshire. I have gone on to rescue two dogs locally called Alfie and Peggy.

I have been at covering at the practice since July 2022. I really enjoy the challenge of a busy practice and have been doing so since I joined the veterinary industry in 2010. I have my feline certificate which comes in handy with 4 cats at home.

Absolutely excellent vet practice. Looked after all our animals (Budgies and Cats) for over 20 years and in the last week have given care above and beyond to save the life of our cat after a serious injury.

I am a first time rabbit mam, the girls at the vets were lovely and very informative. The lady on the front desk was fantastic and so welcoming. The vet was also fantastic she made me feel very calm and she had a lovely manner with my rabbit, she kept her calm and I wouldn’t now go anywhere else. I also took out a £10 a month pet plan offering a lot more than I have seen at over vets! My partner also has a cat under this vets and also would highly recommend! Big thank you from me and Ginge (the rabbit) X
