female silhouetteJade Kemp - Night Student Veterinary Nurse

With my GCSE's and A-levels done, I was off to university to study Philosophy. Unfortunately, this ended up playing second fiddle to my love of animals! So, after my first year I decided that I wanted to pursue my dream of working with animals. What better place than Medivet to fulfil that dream? I hope to meet new people, make new friends (both furry and non-furry!) and be a part of a team that takes care of the well-being of peoples' pets! I am cat crazy and think I will have to forcibly stop myself from becoming a cat lady!

Abigail CichoszAbigail Cichosz – Patient Care Assistant

I was all set, packed and ready to study History at university…and then I realised that wasn't the right career path for me at all.

At home I have two very hyper German Shepherds (Serenity and Ellijah) and four very attention seeking cats (Dave, Willow, Zechariah and Charlotte).
