Sarah graduated from Cambridge University (Lucy Cavendish College) in 2007.
She spent many years working in day and night clinics in the north-west of England, before setting up a dedicated out-of-hours emergency service for clinics in Surrey. She has a special interest in emergency medicine and surgery.
This night service paved the way for Chertsey Vets and then Woodham Lane Vets to be formed.
Sarah also performs veterinary acupuncture for her patients at our Woodham Lane clinic.

Group Practice Manager
Mati joined our reception team back in 2016, while completing her degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare.
She is now Practice Manager of both Woodham Lane and Chertsey Vets.
She had previously been working in the event and theatre industry, but felt like something was missing; and so followed her dream job of working with animals.
After a 6 month break from the team to fulfil another goal: travelling and working in New Zealand; she decided that her home was back with us, and she as rejoined us as our Group Practice Manager.
Her goal now she has settled, is to start adding to her animal family, including one day having her own small holding with pigs and pygmy goats!
