I grew up in rural Somerset but came to the University in Liverpool where I met Alex and decided to stay. I enjoy all aspects of being a vet but have a particular interest in internal medicine and soft tissue surgery. Outside of work I enjoy hill walking, running, yoga and attending music concerts. Alex and I have a blue roan cocker spaniel called Maggie who is a bundle of energy and excitement and we spend most of our free time entertaining her.

I grew up in Liverpool and decided to stay in the city to study for my veterinary degree, graduating in 2019 from the University of Liverpool. I enjoy the varied nature of being a vet, although I have a particular interest in surgery and feline medicine. Outside of work I love going to festivals and exploring new cities.

Vicky Williams

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Hi, my name is Vicky Williams and I am the head nurse here at Woolton Veterinary Centre. I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2014 and I started working here in 2018. My role is to oversee the nursing team and the ordering of supplies for the practice. I enjoy nursing patients back to full health and also have an interest in exotics, radiography and theatre. In my spare time I enjoy going to the cinema, being active and socialising with friends and family. At home I have a cocker spaniel called Maisie, a cat called Beanz and a bearded dragon called Boba. I love to have animals in my life and I plan to expand my menagerie at home in the future!!

Jess Bowey

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Hello! My name is Jess and I’m one of the RVN’s here at Woolton Veterinary Centre and am delighted to be working for South Liverpool’s only independent vets.

I am originally from Anglesey however I have spent all my nursing career in Liverpool and absolutely love the area. I am particularly fond of anaesthesia, nursing clinics and love cats and small furries.

Outside of work, I am a real big foodie and love sampling the local restaurants and cafes. I love my music and having a good old dance, attending music venues around the city and going back home to unwind in the countryside.

Laura Graham

Operations Manager

I joined the team in September 2020 in the role of practice administrator. I had previously worked for many years in a managerial role within another industry and had more recently worked as a receptionist at a vet’s. I was delighted to be progressed to operations manager in August 2021 and I love my job here at Woolton vets.

My favourite part of the day is meeting all of our different patients, each with their own unique personalities and seeing how much joy they bring to their owners.

I grew up loving animals; always having cats, dogs and budgies. At home I have a small chihuahua with a big personality called Bowie, he keeps me entertained and he gives the best cuddles.

Out of work I enjoy reading crime fiction, I enjoy cooking and experimenting with new foods and flavours and I love to travel and to experience new cultures.

Emily Griffin

Kennel Care Assistant
I joined the team in September 2020. I have always loved animals and taking care of them, whether they are my own or not.
In work I look after all of the hospitalised inpatients whether caring for those after their operation or helping the nurses take blood samples or give medications. Most of all I love giving cuddles to all our lovely pets. In the future I would love to progress my career to become a veterinary nurse.

When I am not at work I will be down at the yard with my horses – you will probably just find me in the stable giving Millie a pamper as she doesn’t like too much exercise. I also enjoy going on long scenic walks in the countryside.

Beth Hendrick

Client Care Assistant

I joined the team in November 2019. I was previously living in London where I worked at Hyde Park Stables managing reception duties along with teaching horse riding lessons. I grew up with animals as a child so now being back and settled in Liverpool, I have been able to get my own dog. She is called Daisy and she is a Cocker Spaniel X Golden Retriever. In the future I’d love to rescue a dog and some hens! I also love travelling and spending weekends in the Lake District.

I have always been animal mad and live at home with my 2 crazy dogs, 4 cats, 1 guinea pig, as well as my husband and 2 children.
