Personal Experience

I began my Veterinary nursing career in 1996 and qualified in 2002. Working in both small and farm animal practices and lecturing in veterinary nursing has given me a varied career.

I gained my Clinical veterinary nursing 1st class honours degree in 2008 holding a head nurse position until 2013, before setting up a family run business (offering Veterinary nursing services) alongside my Locum vet nursing business. I launched my own Veterinary practice in 2016 and have since bought a property that houses both Chorley Vets, both my sons independent pet shops and a dog grooming business!

Early Years

Chorley vets began as a one vet practice in the same building as a reputable, ethical, and knowledgeable pet shop. We have grown from strength to strength, re-investing back into the practice with training and development, whilst ensuring a range of modern facilities, up to date equipment and technologies enabling improved services and diagnostics in house. 

I have always been passionate about the welfare of animals and customer care and therefore am dedicated to providing the best level of service possible.  

Life Goals

Our journey is not just one of veterinary care; it’s a shared venture between Mother and Daughter built on a lifetime of trust, compassion, and an unwavering commitment to excellence.

I am a mental health advocate within the practice and I have an amazing team who really do make the dream work and I am eternally grateful for that. 

At home I live with my farmer husband, Dan, I have 2 cats and 11 guinea pigs and love to spend time with my twin grandchildren, Reggie and Wren.
