Hi I'm Rachael, I joined the team in September 2021. In my free time I enjoy taking my gorgeous baby girl Cilla- a black labrador to the beach where she can run around, drink her own body weight in sea water then finish with a Mr Whippy ice cream (dog friendly). I previously worked in the aquatic Livestock sector and have kept tropical freshwater fish for several years, I also hold formal qualifications in fish keeping and care. I am looking forward to building my knowledge and experience in the practice, to ultimately study and qualify as a veterinary nurse.
