John – MRCVS
I studied Veterinary Medicine at Cambridge University qualifying in 1996. Following qualification I gained a training scholarship at the Royal Veterinary College for a year and then worked around the United Kingdom in both small animal and mixed animal practices. After a short spell setting a practice up in Abu Dhabi, I then managed a practice in north east London for 3 years. I set up Masefield Vets in 2003 after moving to the area to be with my family. My main areas of interest are small animal surgery and diagnostic imaging.
Fiona – MRCVS
I qualified from Edinburgh University in 1991 then worked for a time in mixed practice in Scotland. I subsequently spent a year at the University of Bristol as a resident in the Small Animal Medicine department. Following this I returned to Private practice in 1997 and gained a certificate in Small Animal Medicine the following year.
I have worked in several practices, mostly small animal over the last 20 years and gained a lot of experience in many areas. My main area of interest is internal medicine though I enjoy all aspects of my work.
Paula – Practice Manager
Originally from Yorkshire, I settled with my young family in Malvern in 2005. I previously worked as a Therapeutic care worker and then a cover supervisor in a secondary school. As my children are now grown up I decided upon a new career venture. I have a dog called Murphy and enjoy being outdoors. I became a member of the Masefield team in October 2017 and enjoy all aspects of my role.

I have moved to the area from west London, and regularly go back to visit friends. I have three cats, Mr Bruce Wayne, Woodypaws Zarnia and Ladydoll Balthasa (or Billy, to his friends). I also have two tortoises, Bob and Kate and have a fascination for all things exotic! I enjoy cross stitching, reading and have a passion for history.

I enjoy all aspects of the job and have an interest in orthopaedic surgery. I have 3 rescue dogs, Annie, Pepe and Kaiya and a parrot called Roger. In my spare time I enjoy competing my stallion Champ in dressage and show jumping and spending time with my son Leo and partner Chay.
Laura – Receptionist
I grew up in the countryside and attended The Chase High School before progressing to becoming a qualified nursery nurse and swimming teacher. After starting my own family and having my lovely son James I decided on a career change to benefit my family and spend more time with my son. I began working here at Masefield Vets in January 2015. In my spare time I take pleasure in visiting friends and going on country walks to the local farm. I enjoy all aspects of my job including welcoming our clients and pets as they enter the practice.
I was born in Worcestershire and attended Christopher Whitehead High school followed by Worcester 6th form college. I qualified as a nursery nurse in 2014 and worked in nurseries for 3 years. During this time I realised my true passion was in animal care which I have done for the past 2 years at a pet store. I joined Masefield Vets in April 2019. I have 3 rabbits, Bertie, Treacle and Jaffa, a Royal python called Shiva and two cats Tigger and Garfield.
