I have worked at Windmill since October 2001. From a very young age, I always wanted to be a Veterinary Nurse and many years ago I worked at a practice in High Wycombe during school holidays and at weekends. In those days, (yes it was a long time ago!) qualified nurses were not the norm and at the time I wanted to qualify, so left there after a great couple of years in readiness for college. Unfortunately, I didn’t quite time it right for enrollment, and found myself in an office job, having gained shorthand and typing qualifications from school.
I have worked for an oil and gas pipeline company, Oral-B Laboratories as PA in the Marketing Department and at Forte Hotels Head Office in the Human Resources Department. In 2001, I join Windmill, following a visit with my Shetland Sheepdog. I worked on the Reception team and helped out the nursing team, but after a couple of years, took on the responsibility of personnel within the practice. I was promoted to Practice Manager in 2009 and gained my ILM Level 5 diploma in Leadership and Management in 2010 and my Certificate in Veterinary Practice Management (CVPM) in 2011. I own three British Silver Shorthair cats and three Belgium Shepherd dogs.
