Charlotte graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2003 and has worked for Park Veterinary Centre since 2005.
She has 2 horses, Buzz and Wally, who are currently on an extended ‘holiday’ recovering from injuries!

Anna graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2010 after having previously graduated from there with a BSc. degree in 2006. Having been at university for 7 years apparently wasn’t enough as she continued on at the RVC studying for a PhD. in Comparative Sensory Biomechanics. Throughout this time she locumed for several equine veterinary surgeries in Essex as well as for Park Veterinary Centre. In early 2017 she has decided to initiate the jump from academia to clinics and has since April 2017 been working for us as a permanent member of staff.
In her spare time she loves spending time with her two rescues, Pointador Charlie and ‘micro’ Spaniel Inca, exploring the beautiful British countryside. Had she not gone to university to study veterinary medicine, she would have most likely tried to become a professional rider, competing is definitely something she would like to get back into.
Hazel qualified from Glasgow University Veterinary School in 2009, before moving to Australia where she worked in specialist equine referral hospitals, before moving into racing and sports horse practice north of Sydney.Since returning to the UK in 2014, Hazel has worked in the south of England with sports and leisure horses. Her main interests are lameness, imaging, poor performance and ophthalmology. She is currently completing a Masters in Equine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation.
Hazel grew up in Edinburgh and spent many years on the Scottish and English eventing circuit, after 2 years in Ireland riding professionally before university. She is also passionate about equine biomechanics and loves the discipline of dressage, having competed to PSG level also.
When not working, Hazel loves long distance running with her Australian dog Pod, or competing in triathlons.
