Meet the team
I qualified in South Africa 15 years ago and whilst working at a central Tamworth veterinary surgery in the late 1990s I met my wife Sharon who is Companion Care Tamworth's practice manager. Sharon has always been surrounded by dogs and horses at home, has commercial experience working for two different Birmingham-based cosmetic companies. After returning to get married and work on our farm in South Africa for a few years, we returned to the UK in November 2003, and joined Companion Care to open our surgery in Tamworth in 2005. In my spare time I enjoy to watch and play rugby, however more watching than playing these days!
