Laura Nicholls – Head Veterinary Nurse
I studied at Warwickshire College, where I obtained a Moreton Morrell Diploma in Veterinary Nursing (qualified in 2011). I then went on to study at Solihull University where I achieved a degree in Advanced Veterinary Nursing and qualified in 2016. Before joining Medivet, I was the Head Nurse at a large mixed veterinary practice in Oxfordshire, helping to train the student nurses and manage the nursing team. I worked with a wide range of species including exotics and zoo animals. At home I have two dogs; Tilly (a Springer Spaniel cross) and Ozzy (a springer spaniel), and two cats called Tessa and Gorgie. I also own a horse called Trooper. Outside of work I enjoy travelling to new countries and helping with conservation work.
Faith Oretagu - Student Veterinary Nurse
I have always loved animals: I have worked in a pet shop for the past 5 years but actually volunteered there for a year first as I was so keen to be involved in the animal world! I have been studying for my AS levels but have decided that what I really want to do is pursue a career in the veterinary world. I was delighted to get my new job! I currently have lots of pets, including a two and a half year old Yorkshire Terrier called Blue who is full of energy!
