Julie Sturgeon

I’m Julie and I’ve been with Mayne Vets since 1990. I originally worked as a veterinary nurse but in recent years have taken over running Reception. I really enjoy meeting our clients and their lovely pets, it was always my dream to work with animals. When I was a child we had family friends who owned a veterinary clinic in Germany, from a young age I spent a lot of time visiting them, and I found it inspirational.

I’m always up early at the weekends, attending dog agility shows with my two dogs, Fern the Border Collie and Rio the miniature American Shepherd. One of my favourite animals is the longhaired Guinea Pig. I especially enjoy grooming them. It’s such a calming thing to do, and they look so different afterwards!
