Nicky has been working in veterinary practices since 1998 and became a qualified Veterinary Nurse in 2000. Not one to rest on her laurels she continued to study and in 2010 obtained her Graduate Diploma in Professional and Clinical Veterinary Nursing from the Royal Veterinary College. She has had a variety of jobs before joining Derwent Valley in 2017 including working in general practice, working for an out of hours provider and working for a veterinary laboratory company. She has used her nursing skills to do charitable work including a stint in a neutering clinic in St Lucia.

Nicky lives locally in the Matlock area with her partner and her three sons. When she is not at work she is always on the go and is constantly running one of the boys to an activity or class. The whole family enjoys time out in the Peak District with their crossbreed dog “Lucy” who is advancing in age but still loves a good walk.

Nicky has a particular interest in feline medicine and is looking to set up an advice clinic for our older cat patients when she is back from maternity leave. She retains an interest in emergency and critical care from her previous job and is always a calm head in a crisis.
