Jenny qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2009. She began her career in a local Veterinary Hospital, gaining a wealth of experience before joining our team. Jenny has become a clinical coach, examiner and more recently our nursing manager. Jenny’s passion for wildlife is infectious and her knowledge of the subject is fantastic.

Jenny is a devoted Mum, both to her children and her cheeky cats, Marley and Joey. She once considered a career change to midwifery but thankfully chose to remain with the team.

DEBBIE MAY
HEAD RECEPTIONIST

Debbie has been with us since 2013 and is a full time receptionist at Ashington. She was the village dog walker for 4 years but wanted a career change where she could meet more clients and pets. With her extensive local knowledge and bubbly nature she is a great asset – thankfully we snapped her up before she embarked on her other dream of becoming a fire fighter!  Debbie was appointed Head Receptionist in July 2018 and has flourished in her new role providing invaluable training to the rest of the team.

At home she has 3 senior dogs, Digger, Poppy and Dillon who still love to walk for miles up on the South Downs. Alongside the dogs there are also 2 cats and 2 guinea pigs. Her love of walking has led her to twice completing a 26 mile overnight charity walk in London. When she’s not walking Debbie is devoted to her husband and children.

HELEN THORNTON
FINANCIAL ADMINISTRATOR

Helen qualified as a veterinary nurse from Brinsbury College in 1998. When she started at Arun Vet Group it was a mixed practice and she really enjoyed the variety of work, especially the farming side. As the practice evolved, Helen progressed and moved into a management role. She loves the practice and its team spirit but does sometimes wonder if she might have been pursued the life of a farmer.

Helen has a variety of animals at home, including 2 labradors, 2 guinea pigs, 2 gerbils and 4 fish. She enjoys gundog training and walking her dogs. One of her ambitions would be to take a balloon flight over the Serengeti National Park at sunrise and to walk the Inca Trail.
