Lead Veterinary Surgeon

I've worked at the practice for 25 years, since qualifying from Bristol University in 1995. In 1999 I gained a Certificate in Small Animal Medicine. I perform most of the practice’s ultrasonography, and have a special interest in endoscopy. I'm also passionate about cats and am proud that the practice is an ISFM accredited Cat-Friendly practice. I own a labrador, two cats and two rabbits. As a result of venturing into rabbit ownership I'm now very interested in rabbit welfare. In my spare time I'm a keen cyclist – spending a lot of my time off both road cycling and mountain biking and taking part in triathlons.

Head Veterinary Nurse

I joined the Fairfield team in 2018, having previously worked as a night nurse at a veterinary hospital. I have a degree in Animal Studies and a National Diploma in Veterinary Nursing. I love all aspects of nursing, especially bonding with the patients and providing comfort to them when they need it most. I am very proud of our Cat Friendly status and encourage cat friendly practice in everything we do. At home I have a basset hound named Lilly, three cats; Bonny, Figaro and Starsky, and a very cheeky Parrot Named Marty. In my spare time I enjoy ceramics and like to sculpt animals to try and capture their personalities.

From the age of 13, I knew I wanted to be a Veterinary Nurse after a visit to the vets with my first cat. I qualified as a listed Veterinary nurse in July 1993 and was made Head Nurse in 1991. During the years I have obtained various qualifications including a management introductory certificate in July 1998, a first aid at work award, a Hill’s nutritional adviser programme and a diploma in Veterinary Nursing in October 2008. I'm particularly interested in nursing feline patients. I have always lived with animals including cats, a dog, chickens, hamsters, rabbits, fish, a budgie and guinea pigs. In my free time I enjoy going to the theatre with my Mum, socialising with my friends and going to agricultural shows with my Dad.

From an early age, I knew I wanted to work with animals. My first step was to complete a BTEC National Diploma in Animal Management course, which I achieved at Distinction level in 2007. At 20 years old, I got a work experience placement at the Hinckley practice. I undertook a course to become an Animal Nursing Assistant, completing this at Distinction level in 2010. Following this I was enrolled as a student Veterinary nurse and qualified proudly in June 2013. My particular areas of interest include anaesthesia, laboratory work and nursing in-patients. I currently have two guinea pigs and two English Pointer dogs, all with big personalities. In my spare time I enjoy taking my dogs for long walks, outings with my family and friends, and evenings in with a good boxset.

After working for the Retired Greyhound Trust as a teenager and growing up around a variety of animals, it has now become my ambition in life to care for all animals through nursing. I love meeting clients and getting to know their companions as well in consultations. I have a particular passion for dentistry and love helping owners to make sure we can keep their pet's teeth pearly white and healthy. I couldn't be prouder to work with such a fantastic and dedicated team. I currently have two greyhounds called Demi and Bex, both of which I adopted as rescue dogs. We enjoy long walks together followed by even longer naps at home.

Student Veterinary Nurse

I joined the Hinckley team in September 2015 as a Student Veterinary Nurse. I started off at college, however decided to take a break from studying and get more experience from working in practice. I love my role as a nurse. I have two animals of my own, a family cat called 'Jake' who I have had since a kitten, and a horse called 'Jess'. I love every aspect of owning a horse, the challenges it brings and days out we have including drag hunting and cross country. We both love and enjoy this.

We have always taken our Dog,Missy to Fairfield, and where possible have always tried to be seen by Geraldine. She has always been thorough with Missy's care and we can't thank her enough for this.

Had our first experience of Fairfield Vets today - I’m a very anxious person, but I felt extremely at ease with the vet, and her care of my cat was so gentle. A much better experience than we’ve had previously with other establishments, and I have a clear understanding of a longer-term treatment plan. Such a nice place!

Staff I find are very caring and genuinely interested in my pet. Took time to explain all procedures to me even though I wasn't allowed into the surgery I still felt I knew what was happening to my pet.
