Philippa joined the Ark team in November 2017. She first worked in practice as a receptionist at another small animal surgery, and then went on to begin her veterinary nurse training - before qualifying as an RVN in August 2018. Philippa is now Senior Nurse at our Dronfield branch, which involves overseeing the nursing team and clinical standards. She is also a clinical coach, which means that she is able to mentor nursing students and sign off their practical on-the-job training.
Philippa loves all things anaesthesia, and has completed a nurse certificate in anaesthesia. One of her favourite aspects of being an RVN is monitoring anaesthetics for all different types of procedures. She also loves nursing medical inpatients and seeing them go home after recovering.
At home, she has a cheeky Jack Russell Terrier called Charlie, who she loves taking for scenic walks - and openly admits to having a huge soft spot for all Jack Russell Terriers who visit the practice.
