I qualified in 2010 and have been with Medivet since 2006. I’ve been at the Shoebury Road practice for three years and enjoy all aspects of my job role but am particularly passionate about emergency and poisoning cases. I also enjoy training future nurses. Outside of work I have volunteered in south Africa at a wildlife rehabilitation centre, looking after injured and orphaned animals. I also own a domestic short hair cat called Marty, who was a stray brought into the Southend 24-hour hospital.

I qualified in November 2019 and have been with Medivet for over 4 years. I’m particularly interested in cats and have worked alongside the big five in South Africa. I have three smaller cats at home, Romeo, Juliet and Minnie.

I started working for the practice in 2000, this year being my 20th year of service. I started as a part time receptionist and am now the Head Receptionist. I'm very proud to be part of the team at Shoebury Road. We pride ourselves on our good service, always putting our client’s needs first. Outside of work I'm married and have a daughter who this year has graduated as a social worker. My husband and I are foster carers for the local council. At home we have three rescue cats, Garfield, Bob and Rodney. We also have a Tortoise called Fred who is 57 years young. We're very fortunate to live by the sea, so spending time at the beach hut is a favourite pastime.

I've been working at the practice for almost six years now. I started on a customer service apprenticeship for one year. I've always had a passion for working with animals and have always worked in the veterinary industry. When I was younger, I worked as a student nurse for five years, before starting a family. At home I have two beautiful children, Tyler who is 20 and Katie who is 18. They both make me very proud to be a mum. I really enjoy all aspects of my job and feel very lucky to be working in a lovely practice with a wonderful team of colleagues.

I’d like to thank the whole team at Downes for everything they did for our Beloved Cat Bentley. Sadly he was suddenly taken ill and Van & the team tried everything they could over a few days to try and save his life, unfortunately in the end he didn’t make it.. but we are so grateful for the hard work and care in trying! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them!
