Position: Head Nurse
Qualifications: Bsc Hons Veterinary Nursing
I am Chloe, the Head Veterinary Nurse here at Apex Vets. I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2015 after studying at Edinburgh Napier University for 4 years.
I gained my BSc Honours Degree in Veterinary Nursing with first class, and even won the University Medal for top in my class. I was thrilled when I was offered the job here at Apex Vets. I was a student in training when I was offered the job, and I gladly accepted.
I have grown up in Denny, with lots of family and friends in the area. I was promoted to Head Veterinary Nurse in August 2018. I love being able to be a nurse and get involved with the management side of the practice. I lead a team of highly skilled passionate nurses and animal care assistants. I love being a Veterinary Nurse and feel lucky to be in a career that I enjoy.
I grew up in a family of animal lovers. My grandparents have bred and owned Irish Setters for 40 years, so I have been in love with the breed all my life. I now own three Irish Setters with my partner Stuart; Jeffrey, Caolila, and Caolila’s son Freddie. I started showing dogs when I was 10 years old, and now regularly judge, steward, and show our dogs around the UK.
I am also passed to judge Irish Setters at Championship show level. I am now the proud owner of the “Glencarron” kennel affix and had my first litter of puppies in 2022. I love promoting responsible and healthy breeding and pet ownership and can use my knowledge and experience in the practice.
I also enjoy baking cakes and exercising, I love to keep busy!
