Partner and Lead Veterinary Surgeon

I am originally from Zimbabwe and grew up in a household of pets. As a youngster I rescued and rehabilitated many wild birds. After graduating in 1997, I spent time in mixed equine and veterinary practice, but have now worked in small animal practice since 1999. I started Afrivet in April 2008 and formed a partnership with Medivet at the end of 2018. My interests include scuba diving, reading non-fiction and travel.

Head Veterinary Nurse

I started nursing in 2006, qualified in 2010 and joined Parkstone in 2013. I have a keen interest in nutrition and nurse clinics. I’ve always wanted to be a vet nurse and love training our students. In my spare time I really enjoy cooking and scuba diving, but not at the same time. At home I have a cat called Froglet who was a stray that came into the practice.

I first did work experience at a vet practice when I was 15 and went on to complete a degree at Bristol University in 2007. Prior to this I lived on a Nature reserve on Brownsea Island and have always felt an affinity for animals. I’ve now been at the Parkstone practice for almost five years. My spare time is taken up with my son, daughter and animals. I enjoy reading, camping, festivals and exploring new places. I also have a cat called Podrick and a dog called Wilf - both rescues.

I started nursing in 2017 and recently started college where I’m training to become a vet nurse. I joined Medivet in October 2018 as a mobile Patient Care Assistant, and joined Parkstone permanently in January 2019. I grew up in Zambia in Africa, where I first fell in love with animals. I enjoy the cinema, reading and walking my dog - I have a rescue from Romania called Maggie and a kitten called Pudding.

Even during these unprecedented times Afrivet, Poole, have been amazing. Unfortunately since Medivet have taken over the practice the cost of medicines have become grossly inflated. Afrivet with Graham is wonderful, but Medivet should realise how much harm they are doing with their pricing policy.

The practice are most attentive and caring, and really went out of their way to register and accommodate Bella so quickly. I was recommended to this particular veterinary surgeon, Graham, by my neighbour and her daughter who both have pets registered at the surgery. I feel Bella is in such safe hands under Graham’s excellent expertise and I can honestly highly recommend this practice.
