I joined the practice in 2011 after graduating from the University of Nottingham. I particularly enjoy soft tissue and orthopaedics and in 2015 completed the BSAVA Certificate in Small Animal Surgery. Myself and Anneli took over the practice from David Beech in 2018.
At home I have two spoilt cats, 3 pet sheep, a horse and a toddler to keep me entertained.
I graduated from Liverpool University Vet School in 1996. After 3 years in mixed practice I moved into small animal practice, where I developed a keen interest in pain management.
In 2006 I started working at the Veterinary Hospital and in 2008 completed the Foundation Course in Veterinary Acupuncture and have since been treating a variety of cases, both orthopaedic and non-orthopaedic in nature.
Along with Carolyn, I became a director in 2018.
Outside of work I am kept busy with my family and pets and I also enjoy swimming, baking(and eating) cake and skiing with the family.
I have loved working as a vet since graduating from Cambridge University in 2014. I am passionate about helping animals and owners – our cats/dogs really are part of the family. Following my first job at a referral practice in West Yorkshire I moved to Lincoln in 2016 to start a specialist course in behaviour. I have been at Vet Hospital since October 2017 and enjoy being a part of the team.
At work I enjoy following through complex medical cases and performing soft tissue surgery. I have now completed my MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour and the CCAB qualification, and offer home visit behaviour consultations when I am not at Vet Hospital. You can contact me for more details at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Outside of work I enjoy swimming, including lake swimming through the Summer, and running, albeit rather slowly! My favourite thing is morning snuggles with my dogs, the beautiful whippet Pecan and fantastic failed foster terrier Wynny.
I qualified in 2018 from the University of Nottingham and am currently undertaking my GPCert in Exotics Medicine and Surgery. When I’m not treating tortoises and parrots you are likely to find me rock climbing or hiking with my half-blind collie, Jasper. I also enjoy gardening and sketching the natural world.
Ever since I saw the cows in the fields of my native Galicia (North-West of Spain) I have wanted to devote my life to helping animals. After veterinary school, I spent several years driving around this region, both in soaring and freezing temperatures, attending the needs of these incredible creatures.
However, it was when I arrived in England that I started to work with the smaller species and realised the complexity and joy of the small animal veterinary medicine brings. Since arrival, I have been pretty busy. I have obtained my postgraduate certificate in small animal emergency medicine and surgery and I am now working on a certificate in cardiology. I have the privilege of being part of the team of Lincoln Veterinary Hospital since 2018.
I live in Lincoln with my wonderful daughter (light of my life), and you would find us in our free time swimming, having nature walks or reading. I also have two cats: Judas (galician farm cat with an attitude) and Rosalía Boudicca (Maine coon aspiring to royalty). They say never to work with animals or children, but can I ask: Is there anything better in life?
I grew up in an Ayrshire seaside town, and in the late 1970s at the tender age of 17, I went off to Glasgow University to train to be a vet.
I have worked in small animal practice in Scotland, Hull and Nottinghamshire but have lived and worked in Lincoln for the majority of my career.
I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine and surgery and have been privileged to have had a career which has enabled me to meet the general public and their wonderful pets and, particularly at The Veterinary Hospital, to work alongside excellent colleagues.
My own pets have included budgies, a Russian hamster, rabbits, dogs and cats and presently I have two lovely black and white rescue cats called Jamie and Masie.
When not at work I enjoy crafts, gardening, singing and dreaming of returning to the seaside.
My name is Sophie and I was lucky enough to join the team at VH in May 2020. I’ve lived in Lincolnshire all my life having spent my school days in Sleaford. Working as a vet has been a lifelong passion, and after taking a couple of years out to work with horses, I decided to spread my wings and moved to Budapest to study Veterinary Medicine. After 6 intense and wonderful years I finally qualified in February 2019. I have been fortunate enough to gain experience working with animals in Hungary, India, Cyprus, and Ireland as well as the UK. I spent a year in small animal practice before moving to VH where I am delighted to be part of the team. Outside work I spend most of my free time with my two dogs, Arven and Ribizli, both of whom were rescued from the streets of Budapest and collecting and tending to an ever-growing collection of hedgehogs.
I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2023 and was lucky enough to join the team at VH straight away. I have lived close to Lincoln for most of my life, so I knew that I would love to work here too! Being a vet is something I have always wanted to do – I enjoy both medicine and surgery, and am particularly interested in cardiology and ophthalmology.Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to the cinema, playing the piano… and of course walking with our family dog, Milo!
Hello, I’m Kayleigh and I graduated from the University of Surrey in 2022. After completing my first degree in Lincoln and growing up around the county, I knew that I wanted to return to the area once I qualified and was lucky enough to join the VH team earlier this year. I enjoy all aspects of clinical work but currently have a keen interest in surgery and emergency medicine. When I’m not at work, you can expect to find me in the gym, relaxing with a good book, or on coffee dates with friends or family. I also enjoy spending time at home playing with the family rescue dog, Bonnie!

Outside of practice I enjoy regularly walking my parent’s dogs and finding new places to explore! In addition to this I am a Lincoln City FC supporter and enjoy cooking with my partner.
I graduated in Veterinary Nursing and Bioveterinary Science at the University of Bristol in 2017. During my course I completed 20 weeks of my practical training at The Veterinary Hospital and knew when I graduated that I wanted to come back! I especially love cats and am currently working towards a certificate in feline nursing. I have a cheeky jack russell at home and one day dream of owning some goats, after spending a year working with them prior to university and even writing my dissertation about them. I enjoy crafts and am trying to teach myself to sew.
I have only worked here a short time, I became part of the fabulous team back in February after moving from the practice where I trained.
I love working with such a caring and supportive team. I joined the RCVS register in March 2019 and I really do love my job!

In my spare time I enjoy riding my younger horse Billy and since purchasing our first home last year I’ve found a love for gardening too. We have a recent addition who is adorable and keeping us very busy, he is our Cocker Spaniel puppy Dennis.
I qualified in 2004 with a credit and two awards and joined VH in 2005 for about 3 years. I then worked as a locum for a while across the country gaining further knowledge and experience as a VN.
I left nursing to pursue other totally different interests including working for Lincolnshire Police, running Baby Signing classes in Lincoln and Gainsborough, a small beauty business from home and working as a Phlebotomist at Derby Royal hospital before deciding to return to nursing again in 2018. I’ve been working back at VH part time since then as I have two young children that keep me busy!
My hobbies include running, going to the gym, wine tasting and spending time with my family and friends. I also have a cat named Jetty Spaghetti!

I returned to the UK in March 2020 after spending 14 months in Adelaide, Australia as a veterinary assistant at an animal hospital. Whilst I was there I had a lot of hands on experience with the Australian wildlife and Emergencies, such as snake bites and victims burnt in the bushfires. I also did overnight care for several possums and a kitten.

In the last few years, my interest and knowledge in the world has steadily grown, which has not only made me aware of the current environmental crisis but also pushed my decision to becoming a vegan- something I wish I had done sooner.
I started working at the Veterinary Hospital 18 years ago after I initially came to do some work experience whilst studying at Riseholme College.
I have two elderly terrier dogs (fur-babies) who are 16 and 17 and now rely on their stroller for going out. One of them came to me after being born via c-section here, after his heavily pregnant mum was rescued from euthanasia by the practice.
In my spare time I enjoy gardening, spending my time at the allotment, upcycling furniture and photography, along with trips in my campervan.
Originally, I moved to Lincoln from the Isle of Wight with my long-term partner to study Clinical psychology at university. Volunteering with animal research at the University solidified my love for animals and left me aspiring to work with them. I absolutely adore all animals, but reptiles in particular have a special place in my heart.
In 2021 I adopted a little horsefield tortoise with metabolic bone disease named Alduin. He’s been a spoilt little boy ever since.
