I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College at London in 2010 and started working at Fields in September 2011. I have recently become the Head Nurse and I enjoy all aspects of nursing but particularly enjoy surgical nursing. I am currently studying the International Society of Feline Medicine diploma in feline nursing and am working towards gaining our feline friendly practise accreditation.  I have two rescue cats called Harry and Georgie that came to the practice as strays and two rescued greyhounds.




My name is Jenny and I qualified as a registered veterinary nurse in 2008 through Filton College. I have a lovable Border Collie called Loki and a sometimes feisty ginger tom called Hades. I've always had a love of animals since I was a child so couldn't see myself doing anything else. I currently work part time due to being a mum to a very active toddler and soon to be mum of two! I have an interest in surgical nursing and love to scrub into surgical procedures.


I have been working as a receptionist for many years. I am currently working Monday and Tuesday evenings.


I have been working at Fields since February 2014 and qualified as an Animal Nursing Assistant. I will be enrolled onto the Veterinary Nurse diploma very soon! I love all aspects of the job and have a particular interest in rabbit health and welfare. Some of my many responsibilities is to manage our weight clinics and social media pages. I have 3 dogs (Bichon Frise, Chihuahua & Dalmatian) and rabbits (Mini lops). Outside of work I try to support as many charities as I can and will annually participate in the Race For Life with my Dalmatian.

I graduated from Bristol University and realised early in the course that my passion was small animal medicine. I was very lucky to be able to return to my home country of Wales to work with very welcoming colleagues and clients.

I have a very spoilt Border Collie who keeps me busy outside of work trying to get her own way.

I am enjoying exploring Cardiff as I have recently moved there and am eager to be in the centre of the excitement when the Autumn rugby internationals start.


I have been working at Fields as a qualified Veterinary Nurse for nearly 10 years. I enjoy all aspects of my work including surgical nursing and reception. I have recently been away on maternity leave, and have returned to work part-time.

At home I have a variety of pets including my two rescue cats, two rabbits and my Labrador Cross, Ruby.

I qualified from the University of Liverpool in 2014, and quickly fell into a job in a companion animal practice in Chepstow. After a few months working there, I decided it was time to move on as it wasn’t the right “fit” for me. Following multiple offers from other practices in the area, I took Mr. Kay up on his offer of a job with the team at Field’s. Having grown up in Herefordshire, I always planned on becoming a mixed animal practitioner. However, towards the end of my veterinary course, I was developing my interests in Small Animal work, particularly in Feline Behaviour and Medicine.

Outside of work, I have 2 cats, Frankie and Matilda, both of whom were strays brought into practices I have worked in, and couldn’t leave behind. When I get the chance, I also enjoying kayaking and cycling.




I have worked in a number of practices in the South East Wales area for a period of 25 years, and at Fields since early 2016. Having spent the first half of my career predominantly in the farming sector, I have been exclusively working with small animals since around 2005. My interests include all aspects of small animal medicine and surgery and I work by the mantra that you shouldnever stop learning. As clinical director, I am very proud of my committed team at Fields from junior trainees to senior clinicians. At home my spare time is spent with my wife and children who are dragged up mountains and out on bike rides most weekends. Our two cats, five ducks, three silkies, a gander and ponies keep us all entertained.



I've been at Fields since November 2015. I am one of the receptionists and I love working here due to my passion for animal care after studying Animal Management at Usk college. I have a gorgeous Westie called Tilly and guinea pigs who I love very much!


Hi my name is Joanne and I recently qualified as a veterinary nurse in October 2016 from Hartpury College in Gloucestershire. I joined Fields in November 2016 after moving away from my family home in Devon. I grew up on a dairy farm and cared for over 40 cows and their calfs. I love all aspects of working within a veterinary practice, but have a keen interest in feline nursing and would like to progress onto a feline course. I have a cat called Socks and a dog called Alfie which both live at home.



I have been working at Fields since 2000, and I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2004. In 2005 I attended the Royal Canin Advanced Pet Health Counsellor course; I enjoy all aspects of nursing in particular animal nutrition and medical nursing. After many years as Head Nurse at Fields, I became Practice Manager in September 2016. At home I have four working sheepdogs and breed Welsh Cobs.



Hi my name is Natasha and I've been working in the veterinary industry for over 7 years doing a variety of roles incluing reception duties, nursing and management. I have recently joined Fields Vets as a full time receptionist and I love it! Ienjoy being able to talk to our clients and fuss all their pets. I have two Boxers myself, one called Junior and one called Chance who I absolutely adore.
