My name is Polly and I am Reception Manager at STAR Vets. I’ve worked at the Practice since January 2019 and love my job. Previously I worked in the NHS for 22 years.
I’m married with two daughters and we have three dogs and a rabbit. In my spare time I run two outdoor music venues. I also do running and walking challenges to raise money for St Giles Hospice in Whittington.
I’m a part-time receptionist at STAR Vets. I started here in 2018 and I love it!
STAR Vets is a totally new environment for me, having spent 39 years as a Police Officer. As a pet lover, what’s not to like?
I’m married with two children (twins) who are grown up. I have an adorable Grandson who I also have the pleasure of looking after. My pets are two mad Labradors called Ronnie and Chester.
I’ve been a Receptionist at STAR Vets since 2019 and feel very lucky to work here. I really love the variety it gives me, from admin tasks and meeting new people, to seeing surgeries. I also love meeting the wonderful array of pets we see in practice.
Before joining STAR Vets, I worked in customer service and the jewellery trade, including night school teaching.
At home I have two dogs who I adore; they are real characters and I love seeing them discover and play. I grew up with a lot of different pets – at least three dogs, a cat, rabbits, hamsters, fish, and we used to foster rescue dogs. I also loved the opportunity to go to my relative’s farm to feed the newborn lambs and see their horses and cattle.
I joined STAR Vets in 2019 as a member of the reception team.
Outside of work, I am a pet portrait artist specialising in detailed coloured pencil portraits. I have two spaniels, a cat, chickens, and bunnies.

I qualified as a vet nurse in 2006 and worked in a small animal practice for 14 years.
I now have three wonderful children and work part-time at STAR Vets as a veterinary receptionist. This role fits my busy lifestyle perfectly; I still get to utilise my skills and provide owners with any advice or help needed.
