Joleen joined the Rosslyn Vets team in November 2005, originally as part of the nursing team and has since moved onto reception, eventually becoming head receptionist. Being here for such a long time Joleen has built up quite a good relationship with a lot of our clients. She loves the face to face aspect of being on reception, meeting and greeting faces both human and furry. Joleen owns a French Bulldog called Lars; he is rather cheeky but extremely cute and therefore gets away with pretty much everything. She has a keen interest in cake baking and decorating which keeps her busy in her spare time.

Katy owns two beautiful cats named Lipsy and Tiggs. Her interests are walking, reading, socialising with family and friends, upcycling old furniture and sewing. She also enjoys gardening and decorating.
