Holly has been working in the industry as a Veterinary Nurse for the past 11 years. Her passion for animals was the main reason for getting involved in the industry and she can still honestly say that her passion remains just as strong now as it did back then.
Holly is mum to 2 beautiful Bull Mastiffs, Bruce and Norman as well as a slightly precious cat Molly. The 2 boys are both extremely sociable and loving visiting all the staff for cuddles, and at times still think that they are lap dogs despite their size.
