Meet the team
I qualified as a Veterinary Surgeon in South Africa in 1999 and shortly after moved to the UK. Having spent my first two years in mixed practice I then chose to work solely with small animals. This is not my first involvement with Companion Care Vets, having previously been a partner in the successful Milton Keynes surgery from 2002 until 2007, when my wife and I decided to move back to Worcestershire to be closer to family. Having spent some time working for various veterinary practices in the area and being a regional clinical manager for a national veterinary out-of-hours provider, the opportunity arose for me to re-join Companion Care when Pets at Home decided to open a new store in Kidderminster in April 2011.
I enjoy all aspects of small animal practice but particularly enjoy the interaction with clients and to building long lasting relationships with them. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, two children, two dogs and two cats. I also enjoy outdoor pursuits especially mountain biking and fishing.
I qualified as a vet From Liverpool University in 1993 where I gained my BVSc (Bachelor of Veterinary Science Degree) and joined Companion Care Kidderminster in 2016. In my spare time I enjoy going for long country walks, working in the garden and also visiting gardens to get ideas and inspiration. Previously I enjoyed travelling however now a days, tend not to go too far because of our elderly cats.
I first began working at Companion Care in 2017 as a Veterinary Care assistant where I helped on reception as well as assisting veterinary surgeons and the clinical team. I loved being able to work with both our support and clinical teams to be able to provide our clients and patients with the best care.
I have always wanted to pursue a career in veterinary nursing and I am currently in my final year of veterinary nurse training. I particularly enjoy getting to know clients and pets through consultations, as well as being able to participate in other clinical tasks such as inpatient care, anaesthesia and recovering patients after surgical procedures.
In my spare time I love going on long forest walks exploring with my crazy Dalmatian.
I first began working at Companion Care in 2015 after graduating from Salford University with a degree in Wildlife Conservation & Zoo Biology. I had always wanted to work with animals and veterinary science was of large interest to me during my studies.
I started as a Veterinary Care Assistant; assisting at reception & with the clinical team as needed. I loved the variety of each day with both the support and clinical team, and getting to know all the clients and their pets. I took on additional responsibilities in 2017 and had the opportunity to learn and develop further in the role of Practice Administrator. Most recently I took on the role of Practice Manager in December 2020. I really enjoy working to help every member of the team and our wonderful clients & their pets.
Out of work I enjoy long walks in the forest, reading, writing, spending time with my friends and family, going to watch live music & caring for my crested gecko Gloria and our family dog Dougie.
I started working at Companion Care in 2019 after deciding I wanted a career in the veterinary industry. I am hoping to gain knowledge and eventually train to be a veterinary nurse. I enjoy my role as a veterinary care assistant as it allows me to learn something new every day and work towards my goal of becoming a veterinary nurse. In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym and riding my horse.
After my second child I decided to have a career change and joined the team when we opened in April 2011. I have found the career transition to be a pleasant change, and find the interaction with clients and patients really interesting and diverse. I really enjoy that no two days are the same and how well we all get along as a team. Away from work I have 2 young boys and a husband who keep me very busy.
I joined the team in August 2011. Previously I worked in banking until I left to become a full time mum. I have 2 small children and a cocker spaniel who keep me extremely busy outside of work. I thoroughly enjoy my role in the team and find it very rewarding meeting customers and animals alike.
Hannah is often seen whizzing around the practice keeping us clean and well stocked along side our team. Hannah is a mum of two sons, three if you include her Westie!
I started working at Companion Care Kidderminster in June 2021 when I joined the team as a pharmacy assistant. I love my role here as I get to help patients and clients, and learn something new every day!
I am currently studying for my business degree alongside working & when I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my friends and taking my dog Jerry on long walks.
I joined the Companion Care team in 2021 as a Veterinary Care Assistant and my goal is to become a veterinary nurse. I love my role because I enjoy interacting with clients & their pets and providing lots of cuddles.
Outside of work my Labrador Max takes up a lot of my spare time; demanding all the walks and treats.
I have been working for Companion Care Kidderminster since early 2021, after a career in the NHS.
I have always wanted to work with animals as I love all animals and now I'm happy to be part of a wonderful team who share my passion. I enjoy meeting our clients and their beautiful pets.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband, my daughters and my grandchildren. My family & I enjoy taking our Cockapoo Skye for long walks.
