Kathy Senior

Veterinary Surgeon & Joint Venture Partner

Hello and welcome to the Burgess Hill Vet surgery. My name is Kathy Senior and I am the Joint Venture Partner and one member of a wonderful team of vets, nurses and receptionists at Burgess Hill. Please explore this website to find out more about us. 

I have been working in Surrey and Sussex as a Veterinary Surgeon since 2000 after graduating from Edinburgh University. This work varied from small village vets to large veterinary hospitals and also time at an animal emergency medical centre in Australia. 

I was awarded a certificate in Small Animal Medicine in 2011, which reflects an increased level of ability and interest in treating dogs and cats. I always wanted to be a vet, spending much of my childhood in Africa with a menagerie that Gerald Durrell would have been proud of! 

I do try to devote some of my time to helping animals in need and have worked for animal charities in Spain and India. I have two dogs, two cats and two rabbits. In my spare time I enjoy running and anything to do with water. I ran the Brighton Marathon for Sussex Wildlife Trust a few years ago. I also enjoy a good countryside dog walk especially if there is a pub at the end of it!

Senior Veterinary Surgeon

Since qualifying from Glasgow University in 1984 I have worked exclusively in small animal practice. Most of my career has been spent in Crawley where I started as the young Scottish Vet and became the solver of all things management, supervising and training the younger vets and nurses managing the surgery. 

My main veterinary interests and skills are with the small pets rabbits, ferrets and cats hence my move to this practice . 

My husband, is also a Vet, and I have been involved in charity work with cats for many years and helped set up a neutering clinic on Mustique in the Caribbean. At home we have the challenge of managing our woodland property to provide enough wood for our house heating. We have dogs, cats and hens we try to live as ecologically friendly life as possible.

Jenna Webster

Veterinary Surgeon


Read Jenna Webster bio

I studied at the Royal Veterinary College in London, and graduated in 2019, but have lived in Brighton since graduating because I loved the sea and Sussex countryside. I grew up with two wonderful Labradors as part of the family. This was when my love for animals first developed and then it became inevitable that I’d become a vet. From a professional point of view, I have always been interested in canine and feline medicine but my real passion is for surgery.

In my spare time I love reading and get through hundreds of books each year! Many of these are cooking books as I also love to bake. Otherwise I spend a lot of time outdoors and also enjoy yoga.

I qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 1985 at Glasgow University. Since then I have worked in small animal practice developing a particular interest in orthopaedic surgery.

I divide my time between:

Cat neutering for the RSPCA mobile cat unit { we have done well over 20,000 cats}              Carrying out surgery for The vets surgery Burgess Hill specialising in orthopaedic work.      Working in my own engineering business where I make and repair all manner of things including surgical instruments. 

I am of course married to Karen { who also works here as well}. And I have a share in the care of our wonderful pets!

I graduated from Plumpton College in 2012 with a foundation degree in veterinary nursing. I have worked locally since, including at a busy veterinary hospital on the South Coast. I am in the process of completing my feline nursing diploma, and continually endeavour to adapt the care we provide to suit our feline patients. Ialso have interests in animal behaviour and nutrition.

At home I live with my boyfriend, two cats and naughty Border Collie, Brock. I love filling my spare time, taking him on long walks, teaching him new tricks, as well as attending flyball, agility and obedience classes. I am also an avid cinema goer and enjoy nothing more than a good coffee and catch up with friends.

Veterinary Nurse

Since a young age I have had a love for animals and after a few work experience placements I joined The Vet Surgery, Burgess Hill in July 2016. Since joining the team I trained as an animal nursing assistant then in September 2017 I began further training to become a veterinary nurse. I qualified in November 2020 and I am very proud of this achievement.

My future ambitions are to gain more experience as a veterinary nurse and expand my knowledge and skills within the profession especially focusing on feline care. I also have an interest in practice management and hope to run my own practice one day.

At home I have two Maine Coons, Kiera and Tilly, whose unique personalities make them very loving and dog-like.

In my spare time I enjoy fitness and gaming.


Sam Wilsdon

Practice Manager / Registered Veterinary Nurse


Read Sam Wilsdon bio

I have always had a special connection with animals and when I was around 13 years old, a friend suggested I should be a veterinary nurse, so from then on, that is exactly what I worked towards.

I qualified from Plumpton College as a veterinary nurse in 2007 after a 3 year course. I stayed with my practice for many years before joining The Vet Surgery Burgess Hill in 2016. Since being here I have held several positions such as senior veterinary nurse, deputy head nurse and recently I have taken on the role of practice manager.

I keep myself extremely busy outside of work with two children, a crazy Terrier and a wonderful Labrador, two guinea pigs and two ponies who are both ridden by my children.

I am extremely lucky as I absolutely love my job and I couldn't think of anything else I would want to do, unless I were fortunate enough to take on a small holding.

I live in Handcross with my family, four dogs, a Degu and two fish tanks.

We all share a passion for rescuing dogs and have taken on over ten dogs in the last ten years, we especially love Shar Peis’s and most of our rescues have been this challenging breed.

I moved from Buckinghamshire with my family in 2016 and found the perfect job a year later, as a receptionist with The Vet Surgery, Burgess Hill. I now look after our Rota for the team, which can certainly be challenging at times but keeps me busy.
