Head Nurse

Hello, I’m Kerry, the Head Nurse here at GP Vets. I joined the team in 2000 as a student nurse and qualified in 2002. Shortly afterwards I became deputy head nurse and finally head nurse in 2011. The role is a challenging one and keeps me on my toes as I am still very hands on with nursing. I enjoy theatre work, inpatient care and nursing clinics. I have a special interest in weight control in both cats and dogs. I regularly run weight clinics and really love helping our owners to get their pets slimmer, fitter and healthier. You will also see me using our therapeutic laser for arthritis and wound cases. It has been a fantastic addition to our treatment options and helps to improve our patients quality of life. When not in work I enjoy music, going to concerts and theatre shows. I also like travelling abroad. At home I have a lovely cat, Charlie, who came into GP Vets as a stray needing a new loving home. What could I do but adopt him? We’re both really enjoying getting to know each other.

Deputy Head Nurse

Hello there I’m Victoria and I am Deputy Head Nurse here at GP Vets, having first joined in June 2000.17 years on, I can still say I love my job!I love the challenges and excitement of everyday practice and surgery and am especially interested in mobility and weight ‘control’ for my patients. My 1-on-1 chats and moments with these patients and their owners are very special to me; helping, seeing and sharing with their owners when the patient’s tired bones can move again really is a proud moment.

At home I spend time and share my life with my beloved horses: Costa my ISH, Merlin our retired old man and Twiglet the pony. Of course, not forgetting my husband, where together we live with and love working our 3 Working Gundogs; Bracken and Briar, mother and daughter Sprockers and Holly the Labrador. The chickens, 2 ferrets and a very special cat – Ramsay – complete our menagerie.

Senior Nurse

Hi I’m Zoe! I have worked in America as a vet technician for three years specialising in surgery, critical and emergency care. I returned to England and decided to continue with my dreams of being a veterinary nurse. I worked at another practice for 4 years in Hampshire before joining GP Vets in 2014. I still have a keen interest in surgery, emergency and critical care, but I really love animal behaviour and would like to venture into this field at some point. I have 3 dogs Bauer, Shaggy and new addition Dora! My cat is called Yoda; she is a force not to be reckoned with!!.

Hi my name is Becky and I joined the wonderful team at GP Vets in the summer of June 2016 after qualifying as an RVN six months previously. I am very proud of my profession and have particular interests in medical nursing, patient care and client education. I have a love for all animals and have had many companions over the years! I currently live with 6 small dogs, 5 rabbits, 2 tortoises, 6 tarantulas, a hamster, a budgie and a pond of fish (and a partridge in a pear tree – it feels like it some days!). Rightly so, I have gained the reputation of crazy animal lady. I truly love my job as I get to care for animals when they are feeling their worst. I am their auntie when they can’t be with their owners! Ask to see photos of my menagerie when you next visit – I would be delighted to share with you. I am really looking forward to meeting you and your beloved pets in Practice soon!

Hi I’m Rachel. I joined GP Vets in December 2016 after spending 9 fantastic months on maternity leave with my youngest son. I qualified as an RVN in June 2015 after working in practice for 15 years. I have a keen interest in wound management and am enjoying learning to use the laser therapy treatment. I especially enjoy theatre and inpatient care. At home I live with my husband, two young boys and a very chilled cat called Vinnie. I am looking forward to getting to know our clients in our very busy nurse consulting appointments!

Hi I’m Gemma. After growing up in Berkshire, I worked for a local dressage rider, breeder and vet for 18 months. Tired of cold weather, I then started working at a tack and feed store before starting a Veterinary Care Assistant course at Sparsholt College in September 2013. Having recently started my 2nd year Veterinary Nurse training, I am delighted to be continuing my learning at GP Vets and am enjoying it very much. My main interests lie in small animal anaesthesia and in-patient care. Outside work, I enjoy riding and using my handling skills with my lovely mare Rosie, and taking my gorgeous dog Rose for walks.

Hi I’m Kate, I first came to GP Vets as a work experience student in 2006 and I’ve been a permanent fixture ever since! For the past six years I have been working as a Veterinary Nursing Assistant, however as of September 2015 I will officially become a Student Veterinary Nurse. This is many years worth of dreaming in the making and I can’t wait to start this new chapter. I am privileged to be working with an amazingly talented and inspiring team who I know will be behind me every step of the way. I think I would be lying if I didn’t say one of the best parts of the job is all the gorgeous puppies and kittens I get to snuggle and see grow into happy healthy pets. I also take great pleasure in the strong relationships forged with our loyal clients, supporting them through the good times and bad. I share my home with my gorgeous baby boy Noah, Hermoine the Syrian Hamster and Chester the Ginger Cat. Chester was a GP Vets stray that melted my heart with his simple minded antics and enthusiasm for life!

Hi, I’m Molly and joined GP Vets as a student nurse in January 2018 to continue my training. I have been in practice since 2014 and am due to qualify this year. I have a special interest in anaesthesia and am really enjoying learning new skills with the team here at GP Vets. When i’m not at work I enjoy socialising with friends, going on long dog walks in the countryside and spending time with my own animals. I have a very headstrong cocker spaniel and 3 cats including 2 very naughty hand rear kittens that I obtained from my previous practice.
