Rachel qualified from Bristol in 2001 and holds the GP Certificate in Small Animal Medicine. She began working at Westfield Vets in 2018 after working for another local practice in Wells for 7 years. Rachel loves working at Westfield because of the fantastic facilities, the welcoming reception, and the steady stream of coffee and biscuits! Outside of work, Rachel's time is taken up running around after her two young daughters, roaming the Mendips with her dog (confusingly called Goose), and causing much hilarity at a local Zumba class with her uncoordinated attempts at dance fitness!
