Becky RVN, Head Nurse
I’m head Veterinary Nurse here at Green Pastures. My biggest passion in practice is all things feline! I find cats fascinating and challenging. I have completed my feline friendly nursing certificate. I am also an A1 assessor and clinical coach which allows me to train our student nurses. I have three cats at home: Alfie, Gremmie and Smudge. Outside of work I enjoy walking, spending time with friends, home improvements, and gardening!
I originally started here at Green Pastures in 2011 working as a student Veterinary Nurse whilst studying at University. Since qualifying in 2013, I accepted a permanent RVN position. I enjoy all aspects of nursing.Outside of work I spend my time riding my horse, Tyson. I also have three cute cats: Keith, Henry, and Dotty. I enjoy seeing my friends and family.
I enjoy in-patient nursing here at Green Pastures. I love emergency and critical care and am currently studying for the ECC Certificate to add to my nursing care. I do also enjoy clinics, surgical nursing, and student training. You may see me (hopefully not!) during the unsociable hours of our out-of-hours service.I currently have three cheeky cats: Ron, Rory, and Rhodey. Aside from nursing I enjoy arts and crafts, photography, and gardening.
I have been at Green Pastures since 2004 where I started as a student Veterinary Nurse. I then qualified in 2007. I have completed my A1 Assessor Award which allows me to coach new nursing students. I enjoy looking after inpatients and love nursing them back to health. I have two adorable cats: Marmite and Toast. My hobbies include horse riding and socialising with family and friends.
I joined Green Pastures as a Qualified Veterinary Nurse in 2003 and became Head Nurse in 2005. I’ve now passed this role onto Becky. I hold an A1 Assessor qualification which allows me to coach new nursing students. I have also been a Royal College Examiner. My strengths are practical nursing such as: dressings, wounds, x-rays, bloods, and catheters. I enjoy working with other nurses carrying out operation mornings. My biggest passion is everything feline! Along with my Husband I run a successful Cattery. In my spare time I enjoy arts and crafts, particularly painting furry felines!
Michelle, RVN Night Nurse
I have a lot of experience in emergency and critical care. You’re unlikely to see much of me as I work as one of Green Pastures dedicated Night Nurses. This involves caring for your poorly pets throughout the night. I am particularly passionate about ensuring that my patients are comfortable and pain free. I spend a lot of time, particularly with cats, watching for subtle clues to assess their comfort levels. Outside of work I enjoy travelling the world and discovering new sights. I love photography and love sharing my photographs on social media.
I qualifed in 2019 and throughout my training I have really enjoyed the practical aspects of nursing, particularly patient monitoring when animals are under anaesthetic. One of my biggest passions is infection control! I like to make sure our Practice is looking the best it can be! Outside of work I enjoy caring for my mini zoo of animals. I have two cats: Winston and Chester, two dogs: Toby and Walter, and my roaming tortoise Lynx! I particularly enjoy taking my dogs on country walks.
Sam, RVN Night Nurse
I only recently started working at Green Pastures as a Registered Veterinary Nurse around Christmas of 2020. I have loved every minute of it! I studied veterinary nursing at Hartpury College and graduated with an honors degree which I am very proud of! I have always been an animal lover, ever since I was little. I hope to have pets of my own some day soon! Within work I enjoy carrying out nurse consultations and inpatient care. Outside of work I am busy rennovating my first house!

In a previous life I worked at Secret World Wildlife Rescue and dreamed of becoming a Veterinary Nurse. I am loving my training at Green Pastures and am really enjoying going to college too. Within work I love nursing both cats and dogs but am really in my element with exotic patients. I am passing on my exotic knowledge to my fellow nurses so that we can provide the best care possible! Outside of work I enjoy going to theme parts, having long walks with my dog Teddy, bathing and creating enrichment for my tortoise Pi, and helping at Secret World.
