I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College, London in 2012. I grew up in the London/Essex area but I moved to Hampshire after graduating. Since then I have worked in small animal practices in Winchester, Alton and now in Andover.

I enjoy all aspects of being a vet but my favourite area of work is soft tissue surgery. I also really enjoy building relationships with all pets that come through the door and trying to make them feel at ease.

I have a Flat Coated Retriever called Dexter who you may see around the surgery. I also have 4 cats - Blossom, Oliver, Smudge and Merlin and a rabbit Nutmeg. As you can imagine they keep my life pretty busy!

I graduated from The University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna, Austria, in 1998. After a short time in practice I came to England to work first at the PDSA in London before moving into mixed practice in Norfolk. In 2001 I joined a practice in Salisbury where I was in charge of the surgical department. In 2007 I joined Companion Care and opened the Winchester vet surgery. 

Whilst enjoying all aspects of surgery I particularly like orthopaedics and reconstructive surgery. Following 6 successful years in Winchester, I decided to open a second practice in Andover with 2 colleagues. At home I like to spend time with my wife and 2 children. We have a Labrador called Josie, and a cat called Lillie.

I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College, London in 2011. I grew up in Hampshire and returned to the area after qualifying. I have worked mainly in companion animal practice, for both private clients and Dogs Trust. I enjoy all aspects of medicine and surgery, and have particular interests in emergency medicine, animal behaviour and long term management of chronic cases. 

I have a menagerie of animals at home; Mo, D and Sky the horses (Mo competes in eventing and D in dressage), Rupert and Ralph the Border Terriers, and Rose the rescue British Shorthair. Looking after this furry family keeps myself and my husband Murray fairly busy, but we do enjoy escaping down to beautiful Dartmoor when we get a chance.

I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 2016 and started out at Companion Care Winchester before joining the team at Andover in May 2021. I particularly like the medicine aspect of the job, and working up complex cases and being able to make a difference both for the patients and their owners.
 
Outside of work I have a toddler to keep me busy, and I enjoy crafting, reading and exploring the countryside. I have 2 rescue cats called Snake and Raspberry.

I qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 2002 from the Royal Veterinary College, London. After a short spell in mixed practice, I realised that small animal practice was where my heart lay.
 
Since qualifying I have worked in first opinion practice in Norfolk and Staffordshire before returning to Hampshire where I grew up.  I also worked for a year in an out of hours emergency clinic. I began working as locum here during the pandemic and was absolutely thrilled to be asked to join this fantastic team at Andover as a permanent member of staff in May 2021.  I enjoy surgery and hope to do more of this. I am looking forward to meeting more of your lovely pets and forming good relationships with them and you.  
 
Outside of work I enjoy baking, crafting and with my partner Paul, volunteering with a local woodland restoration project. Loving wildlife we have both been involved in hedgehog rehabilitation over the last few years. We also have Bramble, a young Border Terrier to keep us on our toes!!

I have always had a passion for animals, having grown up surrounded by a wide variety of species and so a career with animals was a natural step. After completing a diploma in Animal Care, I started my working life in the veterinary world. 

I have worked in veterinary practices for many years now and love the variety of animals, and owners that come through the door. 

 My passion outside of work has always been horses and I have a much loved New Forest pony that I have owned for 24 years! I live with my Husband, our adorable Boxer dog Ellie and four mischievous rabbits.

Clients tell me their pets look forward to seeing me at the Vets and, to me, that is everything.  Which is why I’ve worked as a veterinary receptionist for many years now; previously at Vets4Pets.  I can honestly say I love my job.
My passion for pets shows at work but it starts at home.  I am lucky enough to have pets of many kinds – 3 rats, a bird, a cat, 2 dogs and 13 fish!
With two daughters, 12 years apart, some might say that coming to work is an escape. I love getting to know the clients and their pets and being a friendly face for them to recognise the moment they walk in.
