Our collective desire to provide excellence in veterinary care, and our shared belief that pets are part of the family bonds us as a dedicated, efficient and cheerful team.
As co-director of the practice, my time at work is split between consulting and managing. Everyday tasks include overseeing the running of the practice and taking care of the finances and administration, as well as holding consultations with pets and their owners and carrying out operations too.
As well as co-owning Monument Vets, I am also a huge animal lover, having been an Animal Welfare Foundation (AWF) South-West Representative, as well as having stood on on the council of the Cornwall Veterinary Association (CVA) for several years.
As a Veterinary Surgeon at Monument Vets, my day includes a mixture of consulting, dealing with medical in-patients and surgery. I work across both the Camborne and Redruth practices, and love the surgical aspect of my role.
I graduated from the University of Liverpool in 1993 with a bachelor’s degree in Veterinary Sciences, and as a Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons I’ve enjoyed working with people’s pets ever since.
I qualified as a vet from Nottingham University in 2013 and have worked in Cornwall ever since. My job at Monument involves consulting and operating at both the Redruth and Camborne surgeries. I enjoy the challenge of both medical and surgical cases. I also love getting to know people and their pets.
I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2012 and spent 4 years in mixed practice in Leicester treating small and large animals. After having my fair share of TB testing and being covered in cow muck, I decided to pursue my love of small animals and the seaside and move to a small practice in Cornwall.

As a receptionist I am often the first face you see or first voice you hear; responsible for registering clients, making appointments, accounts, advice, dispensing, cleaning and various other supporting roles.
I am one of the first faces you will see when you come in to the practice. As a receptionist, my main duties are to meet and greet clients, deal with phone enquiries, book appointments, take payments and process repeat prescriptions.
Most of my work time is spent dealing with phone enquiries and booking appointments, as well as greeting clients when they arrive for appointments.
I make appointments and greet clients and their pets on arrival, I enjoy working in a vibrant and professional, friendly team in an environment where every day is different, and you never know what to expect!
My role in the practice is on reception, meeting and greeting clients, dealing with phone enquiries and making appointments. I love nothing more than having a good old catch up with regular clients and their pets and the odd cuddle of a new puppy.
