Veterinary Nursing Assistant
Lucy has always wanted to pursue a career with pets and worked at the Riverside Animal Centre in Sutton from 2011. Initially she was a volunteer working on the pet unit, but then joined the full-time team working with injured and orphaned wildlife. After the centre’s closure, Lucy wanted to further her knowledge of animal care, having already become well-versed in the art of bandaging pigeons, and so becoming a Veterinary Nursing Assistant was the next step! Lucy has four rescue cats; Poppy, Chester, Peach and Pumpkin – and they don’t seem to mind her serenading them with show-tunes, so it’s working out pretty well!
Louise has worked at the practice since 2003 – first as Park Vets and now as part of the Goddard Group, Raynes Park branch and keeps the practice running smoothly Louise has two children, four grandchildren and is owned by two cats, Bernie and Sid and a very naughty goldendoodle called Milo. Between the pets and the family Louise doesn’t have much spare time!
