ELISA MANGAS RVN

Elisa first came to us in 2015, originally from Portugal she decided to move back home in 2018. Elisa couldn't stay away from BHVS for too long though - she returned to the practice later on that same year and registered as an RVN with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons! As one of our qualified nurses Elisa can be found helping the vets in surgeries, taking great care of any inpatients and wildlife, and assisting in the lab.

GEORGIA PRICE-STEPHENS

Georgia  completed her college course in animal care and is now studying for her Veterinary Nursing qualification at Canterbury College one day a week, alongside working. Georgia looks after our kennels - taking excellent care of our patients, wildlife and making sure the place is spotless. At home Georgia has a variety of small pets - a mouse named 'mouse' who suffers from allopecia(!), a pygmy hedgehog, two dogs and several guinea pigs. A veritable (and slightly strange) ark!
