Nicky came to work in Lostwithiel straight from Liverpool University to start her first job as a vet in 1979 and is still here over 30 years on. She has seen the practice grow from a 3 vet practice working out of a shed like structure at the back of the boss’s house to everything that it is now. She worked as a mainly farm animal vet but over the years moved across to becoming a companion animal vet.
She had the opportunity in 2007 to share her time with the British Veterinary Association where she was honoured to have the chance to spend a year representing the British veterinary profession as President of the British Veterinary Association.
Her interests outside practice include watching rugby, skiing, gardening and walking. Most of her time when she is not working seems to be spent in keeping track with what her growing family are up to and helping her husband do up an old farmhouse and barns.
Since the formation of the Kernow Veterinary Group in 2014, she has stepped out of daytime clinical work to concentrate on managing the veterinary business, but continues to contribute to the out of hours work supporting some of the younger members of the veterinary team. Her greatest pride is to see how the practice has developed since she came to Cornwall and the great work that the whole team undertakes on a daily basis.
