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, starting with school holidays and 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 Acounts, 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 and went on to join the VMG Certification and Training Committee in respect of the CVPM examination. In 2015, I passed my Advanced Driving Test. I own three cats; a British Silver Shorthair, one BSH mix, a Bengal and two Belgium Shepherd Tervuren dogs.
