Teresa Guilfoyle - Registered Veterinary Nurse

Teresa qualified as an RVN in 2015.. She has lived in Brixton for most of her life and is a friendly, familiar face to many of our clients. She has a passion for dogs and owns a beautiful Staffordshire Bull Terrier called Belly and a cheeky tortoiseshell kitten called Kit-Kat. She has run a cat and dog sitting service for some years which is regularly used by many of our clients including those with animals on medication e.g. diabetic cats.

Daisy Darby - Student Veterinary Nurse

Daisy began her career with Goddards in 2011 working at the Stone Lion Veterinary Hospital before joining the team at Brixton.  Daisy enjoys all aspects of veterinary work and is looking forward to qualifying as an RVN in the future.  She owns three cats, Louis, Freddy and Sooty.  Louis is a British Shorthair silver tabby but doesn't have the typical relaxed and calm temperament they are normally known for!  Daisy loves them all dearly though and wouldn't change them for the world.
