Fact File

Job Title: Receptionist
Joined Riverside in: 2019
Pets: 1 dog, 2 rats
Animal she would be: Wolf

Working in a veterinary practice was a great way to join the industry and surround myself with animals and people who love their pets as much as I do. Riverside had great reviews and from my first day in October 2019 I knew I’d made the right choice thanks to the incredibly warm welcome I received. I have been here over three years now and not once have I had any regrets.

I’ve always had a strong passion for animal care and a history of working in the customer service industry as a carer, and as a tattoo receptionist. Being a veterinary receptionist was the best of both worlds. Of course, the best part of the job is seeing the cute animals every day, but also knowing that I’m part of a team that wants to help people’s pets as much as we possibly can is so rewarding.

Outside of work I enjoy listening to music, creative writing, and spending time with my dog. I would love to travel to different countries to see exotic animals that we don’t get in the UK. I would also love to be able to write and publish my own novel.

If I were an animal myself I think I would be a wolf as they are loyal and protective, but also playful and mysterious.
