SHARON URQUHART RVN
HEAD VETERINARY NURSE
Our Head Nurse and VN Clinical Coach, Sharon has been at Ivybank for many years. She went through the VN training when there was much less paper-work and a bit more hands-on practical training. But now, as a supervisor and coach of student VNs, she has a mountain of paperwork to cope with. In spite of all this she appears to be a very calm and relaxed person, no matter what chaos daily practice life may bring. Her hobbies include walking her Springer Spaniel, Molly and riding her horse, Drum.
LYNDSEY CIARCIÀ RVN
Lyndsey qualified in 2003 and specialises in the nursing care of our exotic patients. She is also our resident yoga teacher and many of the staff members benefit from her classes where she helps them cope with the stresses of working in a busy vet practice.

CASSIE INNES RVN
