Reception Manager Animal Health Advisor C-SQP
I joined the company in 2009 as a Veterinary Nursing Assistant and moved across to the Reception team in 2011. I work with all our branches to ensure the clients receive excellent service.
My interests include animal welfare, wildlife conservation, and animal behaviour.
I share my home with ‘Maddie’ the jack russell x chihuahua and ‘Something Special’ the dwarf lop.
I started work at Spring Lodge in 2009 after working previously in the Equine Industry.
I have found transferring my skills to working with small animals very interesting and rewarding. I enjoy the variety of the job, no two days are ever the same.
I have been with Spring Lodge since August 2004. Prior to this I was a Retail Manager but decided I preferred working with animals (they can bite but don’t answer back!).
I am assisted on reception by my dog Teddy who has made many friends who he looks forward to greeting very enthusiastically!!
I have been working for Spring Lodge since 2013. Having been a client of Spring Lodge for many years, I was delighted to get the opportunity to work with such a friendly, dedicated team of people.
I previously worked for the NHS and have been able to transfer my skills to this interesting and varied role.
I own a whippet called Louie, a black cat called Pickles and have rescued a lurcher called Lucy through Spring Lodge. Although I am based at Great Notley, I often work at the other branches when required.
Veterinary Receptionist, Animal Health Advisor, SQP
I have been working as a Veterinary receptionist since 2001 and I joined Spring Lodge in November 2005.
In 2011, after lots of studying I achieved the status of ‘SQP’ which means that I am specially trained in advising clients on the best worming and flea protocols for their pets.
Hi, my name is Angie and I’m the receptionist here at Ingatestone Veterinary Centre and I have worked here from the day we opened our doors in October 2008.
We all work very well as a team and there’s always a smile to be found here! I worked previously in London for a media company but absolutely love my career change (especially cuddling the puppies at our puppy parties!)
Hello, I’m Coral I have worked at Spring Lodge since January 2015. I share my house with my Jack Russell Terrier called Ben, who I adopted from Wallace Kennels in July 2016.
We love to do agility regularly with our local trainer and hope to compete in the near future!
I also have a horse called Bella who I adopted in 2007, she’s now semi-retired but we still enjoy the odd plod around the Essex countryside.
Perry BSc (Hons)
I graduated from Glyndwr University in 2014 where my focus was animal behaviour and welfare. Since then I have brought the skills that I have gained into the veterinary world when I joined the Spring Lodge team in 2015.
You can often find me putting these skills to use at one of our regular puppy parties. Since starting at Spring Lodge, I have gained a keen interest in lab work.
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, going to the cinema, and looking after my pet budgie, Meraxes.
I am the proud mother of three sons, ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Large dogs are my love, especially Rotties and Bullmastiffs.
I live near the sea and enjoy my beach hut and the peace and quiet it brings, and the dogs love it. I have a Mastiff Cross called Dolly Mixture and a Mastiff called Dixon who are the best of friends. Hopefully another dog or two will join us soon!
Spring Lodge has given me the opportunity to return to the veterinary world in July 2016, having had a break of almost 20 years whilst we raised our children.
Our home over the years has seen many much-loved pets. Currently we have a cat, dog and rabbit, all of which have been rescued. We also have a pond filled with a mixture of fish, some of these have also been rescued by us.
I am currently studying towards my C-SQP qualification.
