Our Admin TeamCaring for your pets as if they were ours
I accepted the job as practice manager in 2018 having previously been the Nursing Manager since 2016. I completed my Leadership management level 5 course in 2016 and then went onto achieve my certificate in veterinary practice management in 2017.
I qualified in 1997 as a Veterinary Nurse after attending college at the Bristol Vet School, Langford. I travelled to Zimbabwe, Australia, New Zealand and Bali in 1998, eventually returning home to a Head Nurse position in a mixed practice in Somerset. I relocated back to Devon where I became Head Nurse of a small animal surgery in Exeter for 6 years and then joined a mixed practice in Totnes after the birth of my son. My hobbies include reading, gardening, swimming riding and walking.
I started working for Bay Vet Group in 2011 and have had many varying roles within the practice from receptionist to Student Veterinary Nurse. I now work as the Practice Finance Manager dealing with all of the pet insurance claims for the five branches, collating invoices and other financial controls.
I love being part of a practice that is constantly growing and evolving as well as working with an amazing group of people.
I have an ever-growing menagerie of pets (most have been adopted through work) including a horse, 3 cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and a chinchilla. Outside of work I enjoy horse-riding, Pilates and travelling.
Office Administrator Manager
I joined Bay Vet Group in 2016 having previously worked in a Veterinary practice in the USA. I love working with and around animals. I am now very excited to have been promoted to working alongside the office team since October 2018.
I also have a gorgeous dog of my own who I enjoy taking for walks on the beach and the moors.
I love travelling and have so far travelled around Europe, Thailand and the USA.
Health and Safety Co-ordinator
I joined Bay Vet Group in 2019 and feel very privileged to be part of the team. My role as the Health & Safety Coordinator is all about keeping the team working in a safe environment. The best bit about being part of the team is each day you meet new furry friends and get to see the clinical teams do some amazing work.
My home life is all about my husband and children, our two crazy dogs and a tortoise. I love upcycling and dragging my husband around charity shops.
I joined Bay vet Group in 2021 and have loved working in the office assisting the management team!
I absolutely adore animals and have a little chihuahua of my own who means the world to me – she’s quite literally my furry best friend!
In my spare time, I love baking, travelling and going to the gym!
I started working for Bay Vet Group in 2016 supporting their marketing. I have recently returned from furlough.
Outside of work I have two little monkeys, Daniel and Jonathan, to look after who keep me busy.

Receptionist – Dawlish
I started working with Bay Vet Group in 2019 and have enjoyed creating rapports with all of our lovely clients.
Having been born and raised in Zimbabwe, I was constantly surrounded by animals (domestic and wild) and have missed being around them since leaving. I am a very proud Aunty of a Bichon X Maltese that (as you can imagine!) rules the roost!
I enjoy kayaking, walking and playing racket sports in my free time
Receptionist – Teignmouth
I joined Bay Vet Group in March 2017 as I’d always had an interest in veterinary practice. I have three dogs and occasionally foster dogs as required. I am a trained canine groomer and am now working towards a degree in canine behaviour. When I’m not working or studying I enjoy training with my dogs, cooking and spending time with my family.
Receptionist (Site Manager) – Torquay
I started working with animals when I was 12 years old and I’ve been lucky enough to work with some amazing animals including Guide Dogs and rescue donkeys/horses & mules.
I’ve been a Veterinary Receptionist for 6 years and have worked at Bay Vet Group since 2014 and I thoroughly enjoy my job. I have a rescue Staffie who comes to work with me every day, and I love to compete on my Arab horse in jumping and endurance .
Receptionist – Paignton
Receptionist – Dawlish
I started working for Bay Vet Group in August 2018 as a receptionist then joined the nursing team as a veterinary nursing assistant. I realised that I missed the client interaction on the front desk so have returned to the reception role I love.
I have always loved animals from a young age and have shared my home with a few growing up! I enjoy all aspects of my job and there is always something new for me to learn.
Most of my spare time is spent with my collie dog Millie, we can often be found exploring rock pools on the beach or investigating the ducks on the green.
Receptionist – Torquay
Hi, I’m Daniela. I joined Bay Vet Group in August 2020. I previously worked in office environments and never imagined I would have the opportunity to work somewhere as interesting as a vets and now I’m here I can’t imagine doing anything else.
When I’m not working, I like to spend my time practising pilates at home but sometimes accidentally end up napping instead. I try to keep myself busy by doodling weird and wonderful things and being with my friends and family as much as possible.
Receptionist – Paignton
I joined Bay Vet Group in the Autumn of 2020. I recently moved back to the UK from living in the USA for 18 years.
I previously worked in the medical field and this is my first time working in a veterinary setting. I have had animals my whole life and have always had a passion for animals and their well-being.
I absolutely love working in this environment and feel privileged to interact with all of the animals and their owners.
