Mrs Shelley Jennings-Sharp
Mrs Shelley Jennings-Sharp
Veterinary Nurse Manager and Business Partner
BSc(Hons) RVN

Shelley has been a part of this practice since she was a child. As Mr Jennings daughter she would regularly come in and help out on reception before choosing to train as a Veterinary Nurse. Shelley completed her training in Kent before coming back to help run the practice with her father before his retirement. This family cycle is now happily repeating itself as you can often now find Shelley's daughter helping out her dad on the reception desk. Shelley has many pets at home, almost a zoo, but she is an absolute guinea pig fan having 21 of her own that she shares her garden with!!

His role is possibly the most varied within the practice from looking after all our clients and staff all the way through to dealing with administration and suppliers. Most of the time you can find him either working as part of our reception team or rolling about the floor in reception playing with the dogs that are in to see our vets that day.
