Nicola joined the staff at Ardene House in September 2001 having previously worked as a kennel assistant. She left us briefly to work in Elgin and re-joined Ardene House in May 2008. Nicola qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2009. She is Head Veterinary Nurse at our Bridge of Don practice, where she undertakes management duties, provides nurse consultations and runs puppy pre-school sessions.
Nicola has a keen interest in nutrition, in particular weight management of cats and dogs. Her other passion is animal behaviour. After a long desire to further her knowledge in this field, Nicola beat off competition from veterinary nurses across the UK in 2014 to win a bursary to study year one of the Coape Diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour and Training. She completed this with distinction at the end of 2015, qualifying her as a Behaviour Advisor.
In her spare, time Nicola enjoys spending time with her partner David, their Chihuahua Izzy and their cat Scampi. Nicola also assists with local puppy training classes and enjoys going to concerts, reading, and socialising with friends.
