I have worked at The Laurels since March 1997 and in 2000 I became practice manager. I studied and gained my CVPM (Certificate in Veterinary Practice Management) in 2005 in order to consolidate my experience in practice with a management qualification specific to the veterinary profession. A CVPM indicates an appropriate knowledge, experience and expertise to be an effective manager.
Since 2009, it has been necessary to downsize my role and I am now, largely, responsible for the financial management of the practice.
There were always lots of pets in my family when I was growing up but, currently, I just have one cat. She is a fairly skittish tortoiseshell that loves her food but not much exercise. I am trying to help her lose weight by using one of the prescription diet foods available through the practice..
