We are delighted to introduce Lisa Newman RVN as the newest member of the Farr & Pursey team.
Lisa grew up on a dairy farm and has always been around horses. She gained an HND with distinction in Equine Science from Hartpury College before moving onto Willesley Equine Referrals to pursue her dream of becoming an equine Veterinary Nurse. Whilst working there she assisted with out-of-hours and critical care nursing, routine and emergency surgery, laboratory procedures, stud work and neonatal foal care. In 2008 she qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse and has been in mixed first opinion practice ever since.
Lisa is the proud owner of Toby, a rather cheeky 42-year-old pony, who she has owned for 23 years. Despite suffering from a few age-related niggles, such as Cushings and some interesting heart murmurs, he is still incredibly mischievous and has a habit of escaping into nearby gardens!
Lisa is mum to William, an active, almost one-year-old, who keeps her on her toes. She is also a member of Chiltern Harriers Running Club and enjoys walking, gardening and baking.
We are thrilled that Lisa has joined the Farr & Pursey team and we hope you will join us in making her feel very welcome. She will be assisting us in both a nursing and administrative capacity and is looking forward to getting to know all our clients. Watch this space for updates on her nursing blog and for information about her forthcoming nursing clinics.
