I qualified in 1997 from the Royal Veterinary College in London and have worked in small animal practice since. My first job was in Widnes at Andale Veterinary Centre where I stayed for 18 months before moving to work in Radcliffe for Mr Regan. I stayed in Radcliffe for 7 years . Since then I have worked all over the country in a variety of veterinary surgeries ranging from first opinion practices to emergency clinics and a referral hospital. This allowed me to experience a wide range of different practices which have influenced how I run Beech House.
I have attended further training in soft tissue surgery, orthopaedics and diagnostic imaging- particularly ultrasound. My other veterinary interests are in internal medicine and dermatology. I am currently studying for my Certificate in Veterinary Medicine.
I live with my wife Karen, our sons Ethan and James and our cats Doris and Blossom and our rescue dog Fred.
I joined Beech House in August 2015 and am enjoying being a part of this busy and varied Practice. I graduated form the Royal Veterinary College (London) in 1999 and have since gained a wealth of experience in first opinion Surgeries. I enjoy all aspects of my job but have a real interest in behavioural issues.
I joined Beech House in September and am really enjoying my job so far. I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College (London) this year and wanted to work in a busy, independent Surgery with a varied caseload. I have certainly found that at Beech House!

I have been working as a Veterinary Nurse for the last 8 years. I passed my ANA level 2 in 2005 and propose to finish my nursing qualifications within the next 3 years. I have also completed a course on canine and feline nutrition.
Each day in practice is completely different to the next which is one of the reasons I love my job so much. I enjoy all aspects of my job from working on reception through to walking the in patients. I have previously worked with Shaun for two years before joining him at Beech House.
I currently have three rescue dogs; Basil- a 4 year old crossbreed terrier; Anieh- a 5 year Rottweiler and last, but by no means least Basillina- a taller, female version of Basil.
I also have two rabbits Dominique who is a Dutch and Scarlet who is a Lionhead rabbit.
I have been working as a veterinary Nurse since 1999. I have worked at various different practices in this time including here at Beech House.
I have passed my pre veterinary nursing examination and am looking forward to completing my further qualification in the near future.
I enjoy critical care nursing and working at Beech House allows me to do this as we have our own emergency services- although it can be tiring at 4.00 in the morning.
I also enjoy discussing preventative health care with clients and always happy to spend time discussing treatments with clients.
I have been working as a veterinary nurse since 2007 and have previously worked alongside Shaun at another surgery.
I have recently enrolled at the Royal College of Veterinary Nurses and hope to begin my qualification in the very near future.
I enjoy assisting in all areas of surgery especially neo-natal procedures. I participate in extra curriculum courses to broaden my knowledge and have recently completed courses in dermatology and intravenous fluid therapy.
Currently I have 2 guinea pigs, Garthy & Gwyneth and a hamster called Norman. All my pets have been rescued and I especially have a soft spot for Garthy who was my first rescued "piggy"!
I am a fully qualified and registered veterinary nurse.I am also a clinical coach which enables me to train and assess student veterinary nurses. I began working at Beech House in 2012. I enjoy all aspects of the job but I especially enjoy anaesthetics and critical care nursing. I have several pets of my own- 2 rescue dogs, 3 ex battery hens and a horse. When I am not at work caring for the patients, I am busy taking care of my own animals!
I worked as a “human” nurse for 8 years before I began working in the veterinary profession. I have almost 9 years experience and am proud to have qualified as a RVN in 2013. I am passionate about pet welfare and am accomplished at hand rearing orphan neonates. At home I am married to Christian, have 2 grown children and am lucky to be a grandmother too . If that wasn’t enough, I currently own 6 dogs, 12 cats, 1 rabbit and 2 horses!!
I recently joined Beech House and am really enjoying working here. I have a lot of experience in emergency and critical care nursing which I have brought with me, as well as my love of doing nurse clinics. I enjoy getting to know clients and their pets and advising them on matters such as weight control. Outside of work I enjoy going to the gym and looking after my Bassett Hound.
