Student Vet Nurse
Rachel has always had a love for animals, shown by her monthly donation to Cats Protection & owning pets since an early age. She suspects this comes from her claim to fame of being a (very!) distant relative of Sir David Attenborough! Following completing her bachelors degree in her other area of interest, sport & exercise science, and working in the field since graduating in 2014, Rachel decided that this was not the industry she wanted to pursue a career in and sort after a route in Veterinary Nursing. This was reinforced when she was lucky enough to spend 2 weeks in Africa in 2015, including going on safari in the Maasai Mara. Rachel is very happy to be working at The Vet and looks forward to her future development in the field. In her spare time she helps look after her Aunt & Uncle’s two Golden Labs, Harley & Rosie. Aside from animals, her interests include running, reading, and going to the theatre. Rachel currently owns 1 mischievous black & white cat called Evie and another one named Nala, having previously owned 2 cats, 3 rabbits, several fish and a hamster.
Rebecca has always had a love for animals, which led her to obtain a diploma in animal management. Rebecca’s especially passionate about the welfare of animals and in the past volunteered at a Cats Protection adoption centre and gained even more confidence being hands on with all the cats. In her spare time Rebecca enjoys walking outdoors and being at one with nature. In addition, Rebecca has previously owned hamster and rabbits but currently has no pets at the minute. Her dream pet would be a cat because their personality is very relatable to humans, plus their very cute! Rebecca is very proud to call herself part of The Vet team and looks forwards to learning more about animals everyday.
