Izzy graduated from the Royal veterinary college in 2018 and worked in small animal practice in Wiltshire until she joined Pet Doctors at the end of 2020. She has always had a strong passion for surgery and is working towards a further qualification in the field.
Outside of work, Izzy's many interests include archery, the gym, arts and craft and playing with her 3 Turkish Angora cats - Merlin, Arthur and Lancelot. She's also a keen fan of Eurovision and Wimbledon.
Karen started out on the animal care route in 1998 after leaving school but after college followed environmental work and for the last 17 years working on environmental outdoor education working with schools and families. However she missed the direct work with animals and jumped on the opportunity to work with pet doctors to start her Veterinary Nursing training.
Karen has 2 rabbits an 11 year old daughter (going on 15!) and loves cake. They enjoy spending time at the beach in the summer heading out on our kayak, rock pooling and snorkelling as well as family walks.
