Lindsay Thomas - Partner and Veterinary Surgeon
I graduated in South Africa and worked at a research institute as a Junior Pathologist for a few months before coming to the UK in 2002. It was too cold so I jetted off to Hong Kong for 3 ½ years where I worked like crazy but had the most amazing experiences. I’ve been back in the UK for a while now and have survived the winters so far. I live with my partner and 2 Jack Terriers adopted in Hong Kong and we’re hoping to adopt a cat. I have an interest in surgery but love working up challenging cases. I love working, helping my staff, talking to clients, and I am driven to take the best care of all our patients.
Julie Ponder - Head Veterinary Nurse
After a couple of years of voluntary work part time in a Veterinary Clinic and Equine Rescue Centre I started full time Nursing in 1983. I have held Head Nurse, Managerial and Clinical Coaching Positions and very much enjoy helping our clients and patients.My hobbies include Wildlife Photographty and Kayaking. I look forward to seeing you at Cheshunt animal Clinic soon.
Tarren Rose Arnold – Student Veterinary Nurse
I hold a BTEC in Applied Science. Before joining Medivet, I worked as a general assistant at Hobby Craft. I have a special interest in surgery and look forward to learning more about this area of veterinary medicine in practice. In my spare time, I enjoy karate and trampolining. In the future I hope to qualify as a veterinary nurse and continue to study at university to become a veterinary surgeon.
Kim Fuller - Student Veterinary Nurse
I have cared for around 13 different species of animal rescues, ranging from small rodents to cats, dogs and quails. I currently have 3 ferrets called Muffin, Demi and Revel, along with three cats and five chickens. I have always wanted to work with animals so I am looking forward to training with Medivet to become a qualified veterinary nurse.

I have a diploma in Animal Management after studying at Writtle College. Before joining Medivet, I worked at Mutts in Distress, a rescue centre as well as at Wormandale Boarding Kennels. I am particularly interested in pet behaviour, health and rescuing pets. I am looking forward to gaining further experience in these areas with Medivet. In my free time I enjoy volunteering at rescue kennels and helping out at a care home.
