Practice Manager
Jo has been qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse since 1992. She has had many roles in the veterinary profession, including Head Nurse. A spell of locumming all over the country for a couple of years gave her an insight into how vets are run which was useful information when it came to taking on Wellpet! Jo now largely works as Practice Manager, but still likes to get her hands dirty on a regular basis, her favourite part of the job being surgical nursing.
