Hi I’m Victoria! I am originally from Carnoustie and have recently moved to the local area with my partner Ross when we bought our first house in 2020. For the past few years before this I lived in the Glasgow area whilst I was studying for my HND in Graphic Design at the City of Glasgow College.
I have been surrounded by animals my whole life and have volunteered at stables, and a rescue centre which I loved. We always had pets growing up, at one point we had 6 cats as my parents adopted and also rescued a few strays. My family pets now are two wonderful yellow labs, Mylo and Fizz who are 12 and our cat called Penelope who is 5. You would never know the dogs are 12 they are bundles of energy; little Fizz is blind but that has never affected her enthusiasm they are just the best natured dogs. I adore being out in nature, my family and I spend every summer in Arran, hillwalking, running and taking the dogs on adventures! I am also really interested in photography, specifically nature photography and I love to do this in my spare time.
During lockdown I got to spend even more time in nature than usual and I have really loved birdwatching and trying to identify as many species as I can and listening out for their different calls. Although I loved my course and I love being creative in my spare time, I knew that I really wanted to work in an environment with animals and so I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the team at Apex Vets!
