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 have had the privilege of working in the veterinary industry for over 10 years, learning so much throughout my time. I started out as a Verterinary care assistant in 2011 and found my love for veterinary practice, solidifying my dream of wanting to be a Registered Veterinary Nurse. I qualified in 2019 finally making my dream a reality!
As Head Registered Veterinary Nurse at Companion Care Croydon, I enjoy supporting present and teaching new members of the team. I love chatting to clients and their animals, striving to improve all aspects of pet's health and lifestyle. I am thoroughly keen on carrying out nurse consults, taking an interest in wound management cases as well as maintaining a high standard of care to all patients that come in and out of the practice. 

Outside of work I take time to see friends and family, often going for long walks with my fur baby Jasper, he is a Lurcher cross who I love to bits. ​​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 joined the Croydon team when it opened in October 2011. I have worked as a Veterinary receptionist for a few years and am very pleased that I have progressed to the nursing team as a Veterinary Care Assistant. I really enjoy working with animals and I hope to qualify as a nurse in the not too distant future. I love Dogs and currently have 2 Labradors called Kasba & Shadow and a Mastiff called Disney. When I am not working I enjoy walking my dogs, going out with friends & spending time with my family.

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 and anything outdoors.

I have worked in Management for over 12 years and what I love most about my job is the interaction with my clients. Patient and Client care to the highest standard, is what I strive for in our practice, I love learning and developing new and exciting ideas to help both my team and clients to achieve gold standard service. At home I grew up with all manner of pets, from small mammals through to reptiles. My favourite pets would be my love of cats, Currently I have 2 cats at home, Kovu which I rescued and Loki who is a ragdoll and both get spoilt rotten! In my spare time I enjoy many Hobbies, in particular Kitesurfing and playing guitar, I also love spending time with my family, going out and just enjoying life.

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).
