Dawn has worked at the practice since 1987 and has a degree in business and finance. Dawn's spare time is taken up with showing, judging and occasionally breeding Miniature Long Haired Dachshunds. She currently has eight mini longs, one mini smooth and one very special, very noisy and mega spoilt Miniature Schnauzer called Sheilagh.
Cathy has worked at Haygate since 2010 starting at Muxton then moving into Wellington administration. Cathy has an unnatural number of cats in her house meaning that it is very difficult to sit down on any sofas! Most of her cats have been acquired since she started at Haygate. Cathy is the official Mother Christmas of Haygate and turns her office into a true Santa’s grotto complete with reindeer, often starting to prepare in July!
Mandy has worked with Haygate since 2011 starting as the Muxton receptionist and then moving into the admin office in 2016 and was a finalist in Support Staff of the Year. Mandy has excellent artistic skills and especially loves glitter, so watch out for any noticeboards for her handywork. Mandy has two cats who are learning tricks such as sit and beg – we will ask her for proof of this!
Liz has worked at Haygate for over 35 years (don’t ask the date!). She especially enjoys meeting all the puppies and has a special love for Labradors.
Claire joined the team in March 2017 and loves meeting new furry friends every day! She is a mum to two daughters and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier called Casey. They love nothing better than going on family walks.
Judy started work at Haygate in 1989. Judy particularly enjoys meeting clients and their pets and getting to know them over their lives. In her spare time Judy makes spectacular celebration cakes and we enjoy eating them! Judy has a beautiful black Labrador called Teasel.
Karen has worked for Haygate since January 2014 and loves all animals, so getting to work with them every day is her dream job! She has a little Chihuahua called Minnie and seven cats: Maisy, Fifi, Oscar, Ash, Marley, Jack and Lola.
Kate has worked at Haygate since 2007. Kate has a cat called Jeffrey. In her free time she enjoys watching her son play tennis and rugby, socialising, pet sitting, fine dining and helping friends with dog walks.
Becky works mainly from the Wellington surgery and enjoys meeting new pets and their owners. In her free time Becky enjoys going out and having fun with her children.
Norma is a farmer’s wife and a farmer’s daughter, so animals very much run through her blood. She has spent all of her working life in the equine industry working directly with the horses, and more recently in the saddlery trade. Norma has two dogs, Crumble, an elderly chocolate Labrador, and Spike, a very feisty Jack Russell who likes nothing better than to accompany her on runs, especially off road and cross country.
Vicky started with us in 2017 and has a Cocker Spaniel and four hamsters at home. Vicky’s parents never allowed her to have a dog when she was young so instead she collected hamsters!
