Meet the team
From Longford in Ireland, I qualified at University College Dublin. Moving to England I opened the Companion Care Surgery in Ashford in 2007. My particular interest is internal medicine.
I have a rescue cat from Gibraltar called Bambino who very much makes himself at home whenever he visits the surgery, and a naughty little schnauzer crossed border terrier named Raya who comes to work every day and keeps us all busy with her cheeky antics.
I graduated from the University of Veterinary Medicine and Pharmacy in Kosice in 2017, joining the Folkestone team straight from school. I was born and raised in Hong Kong and whilst things are very different, I love every minute of it.
My particular interests lie with soft tissue surgery/orthopaedics and I aspire to obtain my qualifications in the coming years.
I joined the team at Folkestone Companion Care in 2020, after working at the Ashford branch for the last 5 years.
I have a particular interest in feline medicine and I hold a certificate in feline practice. I also have an elderly rescue cat of my own called Herbert.
Outside of work I enjoy being creative; I come from a musical family and love playing the violin.
I graduated from Warsaw University of Life Sciences back in 2018. Currently, I am working towards my General Practitioner Advanced Certificate in Small Animal Medicine.
I like cooking and enjoy Indian and Chinese cuisine
I started working in practice in 2003 & qualified from The College of Animal Welfare in 2006. I have worked in various small animal practices including a referral hospital, am qualified to train student nurses & have an ILM Level 3 Certificate in Leadership & Management. My interests include nurse clinics, nurse training & anaesthesia.
At home I have two cheeky chihuahuas called Nacho and Ernie. In my spare time I enjoy reading & spending time with family & friends.
I have loved animals all my life & been involved with vet nursing since 2011, joining Companion Care Vets in 2015. My particular interest is neo-natal care.
I have a few animals of my own including three miniature ponies, a gorgeous Great Dane, two sphynx cats called Freddy and Kruger and some fish.
My spare time is spent horse riding & spending time with my family and animals.
I started working in practice in 2002, qualifying in 2005, and have worked with small animals, exotics and larger species (including zoo animals). I enjoy all aspects of my job, particularly diagnostic imaging and nursing medical cases, and have trained veterinary nurse students and lectured at a local veterinary nursing college.
I returned to work in February 2017, joining Companion Care after maternity leave, and spend my free time looking after my daughter Ava, (and my husband!), walking my two dogs, Hetty & Stanley & riding/competing my Horse Don.
I have been working in practice since 2004 and qualified from Hadlow College in 2010. I joined the Companion Care team in October 2018. I love all aspects of my job but I have a particular interest in Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy in which I hope to gain a qualification in the future.
At home I have a working Cocker Spaniel called Seth, a Miniature Dachshund called Harvey, a horse called Louis and Lenny the naughty donkey.
In my spare time, I enjoy riding/competing with Louis, agility training with Seth and of course socialising with family and friends.
I joined the team in March 2018. From a young age, I have always been passionate about working with animals. I am looking forward to starting my training to become a Vet Nurse.
My interests are reading and anything Disney.
