Practice Manager

Hi im Pauline. I have always loved animals for as long as I can remember. I was involved in rescue and foster for a number of years. I have 5 dogs and a cat called Sally who rules the house. I joined the St. Francis Team in 2010 as support staff. In 2011 I went on to do an FETAC Level 6 Animal Care Assist course. In 2012 I did an Veterinary Management course. In 2017 I became Practice Manager. Before joining St. Francis I worked in the mortgage sector and was in the process of be coming a financial consultant.

I joined Celbridge Veterinary Clinic team in 2002, and also worked in Dublin Pet Emergency Hospital in UCD, Cara Veterinary Hospital in Blanchardstown and Port Veterinary Clinic in Portarlington, until I joined St Francis team. We have a beloved cat Masha, who is a family member. We also look after little dogs for our neighbours, when they go away. I can’t wait to see your pet in our clinic.

Animal Care Assistant

My name is Paige. I am an animal care assistant in St Francis Dispensary. I studied animal science and will be going on to study veterinary nursing in the future. I have always loved all animals, big and small. Everyday I’m working in St Francis is a pleasure and meeting all the furry babies that come in is the best part of the job.

RVN/UCD Veterinary Nurse

For as long as I can remember I was animal mad. It didn’t matter whether it had fur, feathers, scales, 8 legs or 100 legs I was captivated by the beauty of the natural world and the animals we shared it with. Working with animals was always a dream of mine. So after years of working to pay the bills, I took the leap at the age of 25 and began my new career path. After 5 years of study (with a year off in between to have my son), I qualified with a first class honours bachelor’s degree from UCD. The dream was now a reality. I’m very fortunate to wake up every day and go to work in a job that I love.
