Hi, I’m Kirsty. I joined the Hope team in January 2012 and I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in August 2012.

I have been working within the veterinary field since 2008 but before becoming a veterinary nurse I worked for many years in costume for film and television productions. Although this was an interesting job, I always knew that there was something else I should be doing. So I took the plunge and decided to change my career path completely. I pursued a job in veterinary nursing, something that since childhood, I have always had an interest and a passion for. It fulfilled all my expectations and I have found my dream job!

I enjoy all aspects of my job from helping during surgery to cleaning, but my particular area of interest is running Nurse Clinics which include discussing your puppy/kitten issues through to arthritis.

I currently share my home with 4 dogs: Rocky, Sid, Toby and Billie. A crazy bunch full of fun and character.

I very much look forward to getting to know you and all of your precious pets.
