Our support staff Clare has been with us since 2008 and, as our practice manager, oversees the day to day running of the practice. She has a Rottweiler and two cavaliers, one of which she took under her wing after he was diagnosed with heart problems at ten weeks of age. She also took on Captain Periwinkle the one eyed persian who was brought in as a stray. Kerry joined the practice in 2017. She has previously worked at a kennels and has 2 dogs of her own. Kerry enjoys horse riding, taking the dogs for long walks and spending time with her family. Kerry has an interest in Animal Behaviour and puppy classes. Christine returned to work for us as a receptionist in December 2014. Christine loves sighthounds and owns 2 rescued lurchers (Meg and Poppy) who all enjoy long walks. When not working or dog walking Christine enjoys wild swimming in rivers and lakes. If it’s too cold for outdoor swimming Christine can be found enjoying films, plays and ballet in the theatre or cinema. Sophie has been a veterinary receptionist for 8 years in both small animal and referral practices. She joined the team in October 2017, having moved back into the local area. Sophie has worked at the practice before so may be a familiar face to some of you. Outside of work she is kept busy by her 4 crazy working cocker spaniels and enjoys travelling the world.
