Phone: 07528 245 452
Following graduation from Staffordshire University I spent a number of years working in education welfare before joining the team at Macpherson O’Sullivan in January 2009 which has since progressed into Shropshire Farm Vets. My main focus and passion is the operational side of the business, HR, managing, developing systems and looking for solutions to meet changing business needs. Outside of work I’m a full-time mum and taxi service to my two daughters, supporting them in their dramatic ambitions.
Siobhan Harrington-Hayes – Business Administrator
I moved to Shropshire and joined Shropshire Farm Vets in June 2017. I have a range of experience in reception, customer service and stock specialist roles. These skills have come in handy when helping to cover on Reception and Pharmacy. My main role is business admin which includes health and safety, fleet coordination, stock ordering, course organisation along with many other tasks. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my partner, cat and rescue hens plus dedicating a bit of time each weekend to volunteering at a cat and dog rescue.
Hannah Speake – Clinical Reception Team Leader
I joined Shropshire Farm Vets in January 2018. Over the past five years working in reception and administration based roles I have developed a wide range of knowledge that helps with my main responsibilities within the practice of diary management and communication with clients. Outside of work you can find me exploring the countryside with my 4 dogs.
Shelby Wilkes – Clinical Receptionist
I joined Shropshire Farm vets in June 2021 as a clinical receptionist. In my previous role, exceptional customer service was one of the core values, which is something I look forward to applying to my role here at Shropshire Farm Vets! I live in Muxton, Telford with my partner Cole and our Siberian Husky Luna. My favourite way to spend my spare time is weekends away with friends and of course the dogs!
Megan Grocott – Clinical Receptionist
I joined the team at Shropshire Farm Vets in November 2021, when I decided to move from farm to office. My previous role as an ATT kept me on my toes and has given me the knowledge to help in my new role as clinical receptionist. I moved from north to south Shropshire so was ready for a change. In my spare time you’ll find me walking and exploring the countryside.
Mel Griffiths – Clinical Receptionist
I joined the team at Shropshire Farm Vets in December 2021 and I have lived in Shropshire my whole life, and love it! I have a diverse work history, from the equine industry, to retail and various farm work, most recently dairy. My spare time is spent outdoors, enjoying the wonderful Shropshire countryside, either riding my horse, or out with my family and our lovely labradors.
Becky Morby – TB Receptionist
I joined Shropshire Farm vets in June 2021 as a TB receptionist, having recently moved to Shropshire with my husband. I have a varied work history and also worked alongside horses for a number of years, however my most recent job prior to SFV was for a lovely small animal/farm practice in Leicestershire where I was part of the reception team. My spare time is spent outdoors riding and competing my horse, exploring the beautiful Shropshire countryside with my dogs and finding spots to go wild swimming.
Erica Shaw – TB Receptionist
I joined Shropshire Farm Vets in July 2021 as a part-time TB receptionist. When I am not in the office I also work as an animal care assistant at an emergency out of hours vets. I have a bit of an odd work background, having worked doing administration in a range of places including a cattle insemination company and a large animal laboratory. In my spare time look after my Persian cat, Cornelious, and use my fine art degree to do illustrations and upcycle furniture.
Shannon Onions – TB Receptionist
I joined the team at Shropshire Farm Vets in July 2022 and have lived in Shropshire my whole life apart from taking two years out working and travelling and around Australia. I have a range of experience from working in different admin roles over the years. Before joining the team here at SFVs I completed my level 3 diploma in Land Based Studies at Reaseheath College. Outside of work you will find me either walking my cockapoo or socialising with friends and family.
Charlotte Evans BA (Hons) – Pharmacy Reception Team Leader
I’ve worked at Shropshire Farm Vets sporadically over the course of the past 4 years leaving in 2016 to take the opportunity to attend University. Living and studying in Leeds, I was able to pursue my love for the arts and I’m now the very proud owner of a BA (Hons) Fine Art degree! I have experience in a number of customer service based roles and on my return to the Vets I will now predominately be carrying out dispensary-related tasks. In my spare time I like to be outside riding or competing my horse, as well as drawing pet-portrait commissions to keep building on my portfolio.
Carys Pickering – Pharmacy Receptionist
I joined Shropshire Farm vets in September 2021 as a pharmacy receptionist. I have spent the past 5 years working in child protection based roles. I am looking forward to using and adapting my skill set to help the pharmacy team and of course develop new ones! I have lived in Shropshire my whole life and have no plans to leave just yet. In my spare time you can find me wandering (or occasionally running) the Shropshire hills with a four legged friend in tow, or out socialising with friends.
Will Bowen – Pharmacy Courier
I joined Shropshire Farm vets in July 2021 as pharmacy courier, having spent my early career in manufacturing and warehouse management, managing teams of up to 75 direct reports. Four years ago I decided to take a different career path and started employment with CIS Holstein UK as a milk recorder and genomic sampler; during this time I met and worked alongside some hardworking farmers who are often under-appreciated for their dedication and hard work. Outside of work I have been married for 30 years to a hard-working NHS health care assistant, we have five boys and one daughter, who is currently at studying at Nottingham University to be a paediatric nurse. We have six adventurous grandchildren and counting and also have small menagerie consisting of 150 chickens, ducks, turkeys and geese, together with a few pigs, sheep and hopefully soon some golden Guernsey goats – but don’t tell the wife!
