Patient Care Assistant
After working as a receptionist at a veterinary practice for five years Lisa decided to progress and qualified as a veterinary care assistant in 2019. She has really enjoyed her time working in both areas of the veterinary industry. She has a grumpy Norwegian Forest cat at home called Rosie who is a complete handful (so she can sympathize with all the grumpy cat owners out there). Lisa started working at 3 Mile Vets in November 2020 and is really enjoying every second of it. She says that the team are great fun to work with and very dedicated, making it really easy to fit in.
