Everyone at our practice is committed to providing you with the very best in pet healthcare. Our veterinary team bring a wealth of experience to the practice and have individually obtained high standards of professional qualification.
I was brought up in East Devon and first started working in a veterinary surgery when only 12 years old as a receptionist and nurse at weekends and after school.
I qualified from the University of Bristol Vet School in 1996 with credits in medicine, surgery, and public health. This was the year of the BBC™'s ,Vet School television program and I could be seen running away from the camera on a number of occasions. My husband always complains that I could have been the Blue Peter vet if I hadn't been so camera shy.
My first job was as an assistant to Paul Snelling at Beaconsfield Veterinary Clinic. During the next 10 years, I developed my skills and pushed for considerable modernisation at the practice. In November 2006, I took over as principal veterinary surgeon. My particular interests are medicine, diagnostic imaging, and acupuncture, and I am very experienced dealing with rabbits, small furries, and birds.
I live in the village of Christon with my husband, three rescue dogs, and my horse, Wuno. My main hobby is competitive show jumping and dressage.
I qualified from Bristol University in 2010 then worked at a companion animal practice in Reading for three years before joining the Beaconsfield family in 2013. I enjoy all aspects of veterinary work, but I am particularly interested in feline and canine geriatric medicine, and also anything chicken related! I am a qualified veterinary acupuncturist as well. At home, I have a fluffy cat called Millie and a cocker spaniel called Gary who you may also sometimes see behind reception at the practice. Sophie is currently on maternity leave.
I have been at Beaconsfield Veterinary Clinic since 2008. I began my training here by completing the Animal Nursing Assistant course and then qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2012. I enjoy all aspects of veterinary nursing, but I have a special interest in exotic animals and have completed the BSAVA Veterinary Nurse Merit Award in exotics. I run our puppy socialisation parties and really enjoy helping our clients and their pets through our nurse clinics. I have a special interest in rabbits and have four of my own. I also have three guinea pigs, three cats, two gerbils, two cockatiels, and two collie dogs.
I joined the Beaconsfield team in December 2014. I completed my Veterinary Nurse training at another veterinary practice and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in January 2015. My favourite aspects of nursing are looking after hospitalised inpatients and carrying out nurse clinics. At home I have a beautiful, mischievous dalmatian called Ruby and three lovely cats called Maisy, Marley, and Monty.
I have been qualified since 2003, and joined Beaconsfield in 2005. My particular interest is in birds, as I previously worked for a specialist bird vet. I am also a qualified pet health councillor. I have a cat, rescued through the surgery, and one standard schnauzers, who I enjoy walking in all weathers.
I have worked on reception here at Beaconsfield Veterinary Clinic since 2006. I have a dog called Winnie, who is a lively 7 month old spaniel cross. I also have two black cats, three miniature shetland ponies and two guinea pigs...I have no room for anymore! I love working on reception, getting to know both our clients and their animals.
I started voluntary work here at Beaconsfield in September 2013 as part of a college course as a veterinary care assistant. Once my course had finished, I was offered a permanent job as a receptionist which I love.
I've been brought up around animals all my life and done lots of voluntary work and fostering. I currently have four cats, two golden retrievers, two English lop rabbits, and four guinea pigs. All of these are rescues.
I have been working on reception here at Beaconsfield Veterinary Clinic since January 2015. I thoroughly enjoy meeting clients and their pets and being a part of practice life. I have a border collie, called Riley, and also gained a cat from Beaconsfield called Marli. He has fitted in very well at home regardless of only having three legs.
I joined the practice in February 2009 and while working here, I trained as a veterinary care assistant and qualified in July 2011. Since becoming more involved with the animals and working more closely with our vets and nurses, I have found a job I am extremely passionate about and want to stick with for the rest of my career.
I have three cats, Bobby, Paisley, and Pumpkin, who was from one of our many stray litters and born in a greenhouse. I also have three guinea pigs, two rabbits, and a number of fish. Having the opportunity to work as a VCA and playing a part in helping an animal get better puts a smile on my face and makes my job worth doing.Suzanna is currently on maternity leave.
