I have been the partner at Chatham since we opened in September 2011 and have been privileged to meet lots of fantastic patients and their owners since. I have a particular interest in surgery and gained my British Small Animal Association Certification in small animal surgery in 2019 after several years of study.

Outside of work, I enjoy landscape photography and mountain biking, so can often be found tramping the countryside of Kent looking for a good spot for either of these.

Kate and I have two boys who keep us busy, our bouncy yellow Labrador Winnie and two noisy guinea pigs.

I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College, London, in 2004. I went straight into mixed exotics and small animal practice, completing the Cert AVP (ZM) at the Royal Veterinary College and Edinburgh university in 2010.

Since then I have continued working in general and referral practice developing special interests in small mammals, tortoises, rabbit dentistry and surgery. 

I have also spent time teaching, both vets and vet nurses. 

Outside of work I am a busy Mum of two boys, one Labrador and two guinea pigs, In my spare time I enjoy drinking tea, reading, cooking, gardening and travel.

I have worked at Companion Care Chatham since I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2016. Becoming a veterinary surgeon was always my dream job and I am very grateful that I can enjoy it with such a friendly and supportive team.

 

In my spare time I try to stay active and have found a new love for home workouts. I have a range of artistic hobbies including origami, miniature painting and pyrography and spend most of my spare time trying to craft something new.

I qualified at Bari University, Italy, in 2016 and have been working as a general practitioner in the UK since 2017. Although I enjoy most aspects of veterinary medicine, I have a particular interest in surgery and have been working towards a surgery certificate to further expand my knowledge and skills in order to be able to provide the best possible care for our patients.

In my free time I enjoy going to the gym, travelling, and eating Italian ice cream!

I qualified from Nottingham Vet School in 2015 and initially practiced in Leicestershire, before making the move down to Kent with my husband, Michael, who is also a vet. 
 
I enjoy meeting animals of all shapes and sizes, but I have a particular love for cats, and I am pursuing this by studying for a certificate of advanced veterinary practice in feline medicine. 
 
In my spare time, I enjoy days out at National Trust sites, attempting gluten-free baking and watching Disney Pixar films. I have a toddler and two cheeky rescue cats, all of which keep me on my toes!

Weight clinics are my main area of interest but I hope to be expanding the range of nurse clinics we offer.
