Job Title: Kennel Assistant
Joined Riverside in: 2022
Pets: 2 Dogs
Animal she would be: Dog

When I spotted the job advert for a kennel assistant at Riverside it sounded like a wonderful opportunity to try something I had always wanted to do. After looking at some reviews for Riverside I decided it was definitely somewhere I would be proud to work and I was really pleased to be able to join the team in September 2022. Since then I have really enjoyed the work, helping a great team to care for the animals gives me so much satisfaction at the end of the day.

Before joining Riverside I worked as a phlebotomist in the NHS, but I had already studied for a Btec in Animal Management with the aim of working with animals at some point.

Outside of work I love walking with my husband and our two dogs. We love exploring and there are so many more places in the UK I still need to visit.  I think I would be a dog if I were an animal as a life of walkin, eating and sleeping sounds perfect to me!   

I am a huge fan of the 1970’s, most of my house is decorated in homage to the era, and I also make and sell cushions using fabric from the 70s.
