Julie has been involved with animals from an early age and worked as a horse groom before embarking on her veterinary nursing training in 2000. Julie can’t count how many animals she’s had in her home after hand rearing and fostering animals of all shapes and sizes over the years. Her own pets have always included dogs and cats but Julie has also had pet goat and Storming Norman the Shetland pony. Julie joined Cromwell Vets in 2005 as Nursing Manager. While working full time Julie completed an extended diploma in strategic leadership and management and became Deputy Practice Manager in early 2015 and Practice Manager in late 2016. Outside of work Julie enjoys dog training, teaching classes once a week and continues to foster and rehome pets in need.
