Jamie


Jamie D for board

Jamie recently joined the Foothills team and is settling in beautifully. After reaching the role of Senior Vet Nurse in her previous place of work, Jamie decided she wanted to focus on the reception side of nursing and so, will most likely be your first point of contact when visiting the clinic. Jamie graduated as a Veterinary Nurse in 2010 and has loved it ever since. Canine and feline behaviour are the areas she enjoys most. Her own dog Charlie is a rescued Shepherd cross who has anxiety issues so if you ever need help with a ‘nervous Nellie’, Jamie is your girl!

In her spare time, Jamie enjoys relaxing with a paintbrush in hand.
