Our Registered Veterinary Nurses and Nursing Assistants

Catherine Dodds RVN

Clinical Coach

 I started veterinary nursing in 2004 and still love the variety it brings. I have a keen interest in radiology and ultrasonography. I live with my husband and two Dalmatian's Katy and Harry. People who know me can see that I love anything to do with the breed. My keen interests out of work are taking my dogs for long walks, going to concerts as well as spending time with family and friends.

Amy Wright RVN

Head Nurse and Clinical Coach

I have worked as a Veterinary Nurse in Lincolnshire since leaving school in 2003, qualifying as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2007. I am also a qualified Clinical Coach and have trained a number of nurses who are all now working as RVN's. I enjoy the challenge and reward that nursing gives and have a strong interest in cardiology and feline nursing.

I have three dogs, a Labrador, George, cocker spaniel, Hettie, and Alfie, a Cavachon. I also have two cats called Harry Potter and Purdy Unicorn. My free time is largely occupied by my horse, Jasmine. She's a bit of a diva who isn't happy with anything but my undivided attention! I also have Harry, an 8 month old foal to be brought on as my next eventer.

Clinical Coach

Currently on maternity leave

Kayleigh Sherwin

I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2005. I have a young family consisting of two boys, and a husband.  I also have a Jack Russell, called Scrumpy, 3 cats, and a tortoise.

I like to explore the local Lincolnshire heritage, and make the most of our family National Trust Membership.  In my spare time I like to sew, and I use the sewing machine to make crafts, mainly for a hobby.

My main interest is the health and wellbeing of animals from the very young to the very old, and I enjoy learning new things about nutrition.


Francesca Swift

Student Veterinary Nurse

In November 2013 I joined Quarrington Veterinary Practice having just moved back from Glasgow. I worked there as an Animal Care Assistant at a referral hospital for over a year but missed living in the countryside. I have moved back home where I own two dogs, Miley (Jack Russell cross) and Bruno (Lhasa Apso) who take up a lot of my spare time. I also enjoy seeing my friends, visiting my sisters in London and Edinburgh and try motivating myself to go to the gym.

I joined the Quarrington Veterinary Practice team in December 2009, having brought with me 5 1/2 years of veterinary nursing experience, working within a mixed practice. I enjoy all aspects and challenges that nursing brings, especially the variety, never knowing what each day may hold. My particular areas of interest lie in rabbit care, theatre and laboratory work. In my spare time I enjoy martial arts and films. I am owned by two Springer Spaniels. I also have two Dutch rabbits who have acquired the finest culinary palettes for organic vegetables.

I joined Quarrington Veterinary Surgery in September 2016 from my previous experience being a night/day nursing assistant.

Before taking a career change into the wonderful world of Animal Care, I completed 9 years in the Royal Air Force as a personnel support clerk.

I have recently qualified as a Veterinary Care Assistant through the College of Animal Welfare and I am planning to continue my studies to become a Registered Veterinary Nurse in April 2018.

Lucy Steele Nursing Assistant

I joined Quarrington Veterinary Surgery in October 2016. I finished studying an extened diploma in Animal management at Riseholme College in 2012 and have since studied in different fields including dog handling.

I have a keen interest in exotics and earlier this year I began rehabilitating hedgehogs and it is something I hope to carry on doing for many years to come. I live at home with my 2 dogs, Scott and Lola, 6 guinea pigs, 4 snakes, 2 horses and a fish (and however many hedgehogs are visiting!)

A Lifetime of Quality Care

I joined Quarrington Veterinary Surgery in April 2017

having previously worked at an 'out of hours emergency practice' as a receptionist / animal care assistant. My aim is to become a fully registered veterinary nurse. I have pets of my own, a cat called Nellie and a sprocker spaniel called Bailey. When I am not working I enjoy walking with Bailey in the country-side or spending time with family and friends.

I joined Quarrington Veterinary Surgery in August 2017.

I am originally from Edinburgh but have spent the last 7 years living in Cornwall as my husband is in the military.

I have two Border Collies, Bailey and Callie and I enjoy taking them on long walks and doing agility training with them. I am a keen horse rider and enjoy keeping fit.

Abbie Everett Nursing Assistant

I joined Quarrington Veterinary Surgery in July 2017 after I had finished my A-Levels at Lincoln College.

I live at home with my poodle cross called Murray, my yorkshire terrier called Albert and a dwarf rabbit Aurora, who I tend to spoil.

In my spare time I like to visit the cinema with friends and cuddle up on the sofa with my pooches.

I am hoping to go on to study Veterinary Nursing in the future.
