Meet the team
I qualified and obtained my MRCVS Veterinary Degree from the Royal Veterinary College, London in 1994. Since then, I have worked in 2 main practices, the last being local here in Croydon. Having done long stints in my two main jobs, it enabled me to form a great bond with my clients and their pets, most of whom I now consider my friends.
This in turn has made it easier for me to get involved with them at a deeper level and provide very high quality Veterinary care to my patients, this level of care being what I am especially passionate about. I have a wide experience in most surgical and diagnostic procedures and have a particular interest in Internal medicine and Abdominal Ultrasonography. When I am not working, I love tennis, whether playing, watching or going to Wimbledon and also travelling and eating out. Having the time to enjoy my hobbies is however highly dependent on my 2 adorable cats who love to wrap me around their little paws!!
I graduated in Spain at Alfonso X El Sabio University in 2014 where I studied Veterinary medicine. I then worked in a variety of hospitals in Spain and performed a rotating internship in a referral Hospital. I then wanted to broaden my experience in Veterinary Medicine so in 2019, I left Spain and obtained my MRCVS membership, and I am now working as a veterinary surgeon in the UK which I find very rewarding .
I am very passionate about internal medicine with a special interest in oncology. I pride myself on providing the best standard of patient care for all of my hospitalised patients and enjoy building relationships with clients in my consultations too.
I have a cat called Sort and a Labrador cross called Timonet, who I absolutely adore- they do say dogs are a man’s best friend! I regularly visit Spain to see my Spanish friends and family who I miss a lot. However in my spare time locally I enjoy long walks with Timonet, eating out with friends and going to concerts.
I studied at the University of Veterinary Medicine Budapest and qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 2019. Since then I've worked in the UK at a first opinion practice in Kent before going on maternity and joining Croydon Companion Care in March 2023.
I thoroughly enjoy working as a vet, caring for patients and engaging with clients. I like both internal medicine and surgery with particular interest in feline medicine.
In my spare time I enjoy looking after my son, running, travelling and cooking. I also have a lovely rescue cat called Sophie who I took on as a stray.
Outside of work I take time to see friends and family, often going for long walks with my fur baby Penny, she is a German Shorthaired Pointer who I love to bits. We also meet up with Jasper who is my family dog where they run around together having lots of fun! I also enjoy travelling to many different destinations around the world, working hard to keep fit beforehand so I can indulge while I'm away!
I have been working in the Veterinary industry since 2008, initially as a Receptionist, I joined Companion Care Croydon when it opened in 2011. In 2017 I achieved my dream of becoming a Registered Veterinary Nurse which I am very proud of. Since then I have progressed to deputy head RVN. I enjoy working closely with the head RVN to support the practice, coaching students and new staff members, and generally helping out the team anyway I can. I enjoy all aspects of the job but particularly like nursing hospitalised patients, giving them TLC and keeping them as comfortable as possible. Getting them well enough to go home is a great feeling.
In my spare time I look after my young son, we like going to the park and watching the birds and squirrels, and like spending time with family. Unfortunately I don't currently have any pets of my own but it means the ones at work get extra cuddles from me.
My favourite aspects at the moment are in-patient care, and consults, as I enjoy working closely with animals and making sure they have what they need to be as well as they can.
My hobbies are singing, reading, and outings with my family and friends.
I have been with the practice since Christmas 2021, having previously completed 2 work placements in the practice which I loved! I have always wanted to be a Veterinary Nurse and was so excited when I got the opportunity to follow my ambition. I enjoy Nursing as it means I get to spend time with all our lovely patients, getting to know them, and hopefully help them feel better when they are poorly.
I have 2 dogs of my own, both Labradoodles called Max and Daisy, who I enjoy going on long walks or cuddling up with on the sofa. I also have a rescue hamster called Cappuccino, which means if we ever have a hamster in practice I’m called on to help as I have a knack for handling them!
It is my pleasure to join Companion Care Croydon with this amazing team. I have been working in the veterinary industry since 2017. I worked in two practices when I was in Hong Kong. One is a small veterinary clinic with mostly ophthalmology cases which I am very interested in, the other one is a 24hours hospital. I have learnt a lot throughout my time in these practice and I enjoyed it so much.
I moved to the UK in 2023 and my new chapter begins. I wish to learn more knowledge and skills here, while giving the animals the love they deserve.
I love walking my ‘son’, my rescue dog Circle from Hong Kong in my spare time. He was dumped near a rubbish bin when he was just few weeks old, but now he is the happiest dog because my husband and I love him very much! I am looking forward to exploring different beautiful places in the UK with both of them!
I have been with the practice since 2015. I started as work experience for 6 months and was hired on as Veterinary care assistant afterwards. Since this time I have been given the opportunity to further myself and now have started my Veterinary Nurse training.
I found my love of animals from a young age and have owned a variety of animals over the years. I now have 3 dogs Sadie (jack x pom), Logan (staffy cross) and Marnie ( staffy x mastiff). They are my babies and would do anything for them. Its due to them that I found my love of the veterinary industry and have never looked back. Everyone at the practice knows me as the staffy lady as I have quite a fondness for the breed. But love anything with fur. My hobbies are writing short stories and anything outdoors.
When I was younger, it was my dream to become a vet. When I carried out work experience, my dream changed as I felt nursing was the career path I needed to follow. I thoroughly enjoyed my placement here at Companion Care Croydon and since then have been offered career development opportunities. I am currently studying at Middlesex university to obtain my degree in veterinary nursing. I have an interest in the care of hospitalised patients and helping to rehabilitate them to full health when possible.
I have 2 cats and 2 gerbils at home whom I love with all my heart. My passion is horses along with horse riding and my long term goal is to become an equine nurse. My dream is to own a little farm with my horse and companion pony out in the countryside.
I had the honour of joining the Companion Care Croydon team in April 2022 as a Veterinary Care Assistant, particularly interested in helping and observing the surgery and then looking after the patients throughout their recovery. I have now enrolled as a Student Veterinary Nurse to pursue a career in veterinary and can't wait to learn more skills and qualify in a couple of years!
I found my love for animals from a young age and have owned a variety of animals over the years, including fish, hamsters, guinea pigs and now own a rescue dog called Jasper who is a Lurcher X. In my spare time I enjoy going on dog walks, going to the gym and meeting friends.
I have always had such a love for animals as well as a love for science. So getting into the Veterinary Industry is a dream come true. For now I am enjoying helping and observing surgeries as well as getting to know all of our lovely patients. In the near future I would love to progress further and become a Veterinary Nurse.
My love for animals came from growing up around plenty of family pets. My babies at the moment are George my Guinea Pig and Bob my Jack Russell, who you can see loves the camera. In my spare time I enjoy reading, going out with friends and fitness.
Since I was young I have always had a passion for animals. I always wanted to be a veterinary nurse and look after poorly animals. After working different jobs I found myself at wildlife aid, which sparked my passion to pursue a career in veterinary nursing. I joined Companion Care Croydon in October 2022 as a veterinary care assistant and love every minute.
I have three rats at home - light, tatl and tael, who I love with all my heart and consider them to be my babies. I have a love for rodents and have always kept hamsters since I was a kid. The best part of this job is meeting all the animals and being able to care and nurse them back to health.
My hobbies include video gaming, painting, tattooing and horse riding when I can.
Veterinary Care Assistant
I joined Croydon Companion Care in October 2016 as Veterinary Care Assistant. Initially, I spent a lot of time on reception but also managed to help the vets and nurses in the surgery and since January 2018 my role changed to Receptionist. I very much enjoy helping clients and animals out front although I still occasionally assist the vets and nurses in the surgery.
Prior to joining I worked in the music industry for nearly 30 years! At the end of the day working with animals is a lot more fun and rewarding even though it can be sad at times.
I met my beautiful baby boy Rafa when I was at college studying Animal Management. I lost my first cat Luca after 17 years suddenly to cancer and soon after was asked to look after Rafa who was at the Blue Cross on site. I wasn't looking for another cat (losing Luca destroyed me) but after spending four months looking after Rafa, I knew I couldn’t be without him and the feeling was mutual. I brought my little monster home with me in August 2015 and haven’t looked back since.
I spend as much of my spare time as possible with Rafa (of course), Taco (my twin’s cat), my family and friends, going for walks, eating out and going to concerts (although I’ve been lucky enough to have seen all my favourite acts more than once now especially The Cure, The Killers and Pink).
Hello all, I'm Jess. Prior to this role at Companion Care Croydon I received my degree in classical antiquities from the university of Roehampton. Studying classics I took a particular interest in mythology, politics, and museum management and archive research. Whilst I loved my course and the subject is still a huge interest of mine, during my time working in museums I realised how much I loved meeting and helping new people. So I searched for the perfect job, combining a love of people and animals- and here I am!!
I have always loved animals, and over the years I have owned nearly everything. From bearded dragons, gecko's, gerbils, guinea pigs and rabbits to snakes and scorpions. I have two dogs (Percy a cockapoo and Eevee the Jack Russell) and my rabbits River and Rory (who is posing with me in the picture above). In my spare time I read a lot, enjoy watching films and drawing.
