I am a highly motivated, enthusiastic and confident vet with 9 years experience. I provide a high standard of care, and pay great attention to detail. I enjoy attending CPD, learning and implementing the most up to date practices and have recently completed the BSAVA Small Animal Internal Medicine Certificate, which was awarded to me this year with commendation.
After graduating from Bristol University in 2008, I worked in India for a veterinary charity and neutering clinic. I then spent 4 years working for Medivet, initially working as a ‘floating vet’ covering approximately 15 branches, then took on a sole charge role dedicating myself to one branch. The subsequent 4 years have been spent working as part of a large and busy team at Kinfauns Veterinary Centre in Essex, and most recently working at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, where I developed a good insight into shelter medicine.
My various roles have allowed me to work independently, being responsible for making clinical decisions relating to all diagnostic, medical and surgical procedures, and also to work well as part of a team, taking part in group discussions about more complicated cases.
I am a competent surgeon, confidently carrying out routine procedures, can perform abdominal ultrasounds, and work methodically and systematically through medicine cases, showing a logical and practical approach, and choose appropriate diagnostic tests relevant to the case.
Large caseloads have allowed me to develop skills to work quickly and efficiently whilst under pressure, meeting high standards and client expectation. I can communicate effectively and efficiently with clients and staff that have different levels of education, people of different ages and understanding, and worked as a Clinical Coach in my first role.
Recently I have moved back to London to be closer to family, and I am now keen to discover the locum role, working at a variety of veterinary practices, alongside a diversity of new colleagues. I believe that my friendly personality, approachability, capacity to easily integrate into a team, excellent communication skills, experience and strong work ethic will allow me to take on this role effectively.
