I have worked for Spring Lodge since 1985! The practice has changed dramatically since I started and it has been very satisfying to assist and be part of this change.
I enjoy the varied nature of my job and especially enjoy forming a relationship with our clients, some of whom I feel I have got to know very well over the last 30+ years.
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 of 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, ‘Asko’ the corgi x sheltie, ‘Baby’ the little black cat, 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.
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!
I have been working for Spring Lodge since October 2005. I am enjoying the opportunity to work within such an interesting and varied environment where no two days are ever the same.
Over the years, I have accumulated a menagerie of animals ranging from bantams to iguanas.
I now share my home with two dogs, three cats and a husband, all of them rescued!
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.
