She has recently begun her journey to becoming a veterinarian by starting the Doctor of Veterinary medicine, with special interests in small animal surgery and equine medicine.
Julia is a friendly and approachable person and you can find her mostly on reception. She’s very excited to be working with Greencross in client services to gain more experience in the personal aspect of this rewarding career.
Phil has been part of the Greencross family for almost a decade and is currently progressing his professional education by completing further nursing qualifications. As a long standing member of this community and team, he knows many of you and your pets very well and we are so proud of the rapport he has built in our local community.
