Philippa joined the Ark team in November 2017. She first worked in practice as a receptionist at another small animal surgery, and then went onto begin her veterinary nurse training - finally qualifying as an RVN in August 2018.
She is also a clinical coach, which means that she is able to oversee nursing students and sign off their practical on-the-job training.
One of her favourite aspects of the role is caring for inpatients and helping them on the road to recovery. Philippa especially enjoys doing nurse consults, where she can discuss pet health in greater detail and give advice to our clients about topics such as dental hygiene, diet and neutering.
She has a naughty Jack Russell 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.
