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.
Take a look below and our fantastic team:
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, two rescue dogs, and my horses, Wuno and Arthur. 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.
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 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 Beaconsfield in January 2019, however, I have spent my weekends volunteering at the practice since August 2018. In 2021 I qualified and am now a Registered Veterinary Nurse and a Clinical Coach.
At home, I have a beautiful German Shepherd, Barney, whom I love! I also have Harry, my black and white cat. He came to Beaconsfield as a 4 week old kitten. Outside of work I enjoy travelling.
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 were all from one of our many stray litters and were born in a greenhouse. I also have 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.
I studied Animal Management at Weston College and came to Beaconsfield for work experience in 2016.
Since then I completed a Veterinary Care Assistant qualifiction at Bridgwater College and am now fully qualified.
In my spare time, I like to care for my two rabbits and two cats.
I have worked on reception here at Beaconsfield Veterinary Clinic since 2006. I love working on reception, getting to know both our clients and their animals.
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!
