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 back 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 Doug and Glenn offered me a job, and I gladly accepted. I have grown up in Denny, with lots of family and friends in the area. I love knowing so many of the clients that come to Apex, and also love meeting new clients and their pets.
I grew up in a family of animal lovers. My grandparents have bred and owned Irish Setters for over 40 years, so I have been in love with the breed all my life. I now own two lovely Irish Setters with my partner Stuart, they are called Jeffrey and Caolila. I started going to dog shows when I was 10 years old, and now regularly judge, steward and show Caolila at shows around the UK. My grandparents gifted me their Kennel Affix “Glencarron” which was a great honour. I know there will always be an Irish Setter by my side. I also enjoying baking and exercising – I love to keep busy!
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 and lead my team of highly skilled passionate nurses. We really are a close team here at Apex. I am also seen as the “Pancreas” nurse here, as I have a keen interest in the management of Pancreatitis and Diabetes, and even lead the nurse clinics for both conditions here. I love being a Veterinary Nurse and feel so lucky to be in a career that I enjoy.
