Hi my name is Gemma. I work at both Diss and Harleston branches, and have been a member of the team since February 2016. I have worked in the veterinary world since I was 17 but took 5 years out when I had my son Ethan.

I really enjoy my work being able to care for the animals and meeting new people. I especially love meeting puppies and kittens!

Outside of work I keep busy with 2 dogs, 2 cats, house rabbit, a Chinchilla and 2 Horses.
