 Lucy Boulter RVN, Head Nurse.

I have worked at White Lodge since 2009, and have since become a registered veterinary nurse, I recently gained my Ncert ECC, which is a certificate in emergency and critical care. I aim to give an extremely high standard of nursing care to all my patients, and treat each animal as if it was my own.

Alongside this, I am a qualified clinical coach, so can use my experience and knowledge to help train the student nurses here at White Lodge. 

 At home, I have my very soppy Rhodesian Ridegeback called Xaus, he is a genuine big, friendly giant, and regularly gives blood when needed.

Laura Dobson RVN, Head Equine Nurse.

I first joined White Lodge in 2010, and have since become a qualified Vet Nurse. I'd love to qualify in equine nursing in the future, as I have a particular interest in that field, and spend most of my time seeing to our equine and farm patients at the new Ellicombe Clinic. 

Outside of work, I'm always surrounded by animals! Whether I'm out exploring on my horse, stag hunting, or animal sitting - I also run a pet care service, and usually have an extra dog or two to stay! I'm also part of the young farmers, I enjoy the young farmer and local hunt events, such as the valentines/christmas balls, and help to organise some of them.

I have four horses, Lola my Suffolk Punch x TB, and Tory my TB x Cob who I regularly hunt. I also have Jess and Crispin, who are both on loan to lovely homes! Completing the family there is Sky and Maisie, my border collie and jack russell, who enjoy helping me at work, especially when they get to make new friends.

Lucy Hastings RVN.

I started at White Lodge in 2013 as a student Vet Nurse, successfully qualifying in 2015. I really do love my job, particularly the work with exotics. 

I've always worked with animals, from exercising local hunt horses, dog sitting, being a competition groom and breaking in youngsters.

My spare time is spent in the same way, I have a horse called Dallas who I hope to start showing. I'm also kept busy with my mini-smallholding at home, two goats, three chickens and three ducks!  Not forgetting my three dogs, Scampi, Sky and Opie.

Kathy Batts RVN (Part Time).

I have worked part time at this West Somerset Vets since 2000, as a qualified veterinary nurse. Since then, I have gained a city and guilds certificate in grooming and spend quite a bit of my time pampering pooches, both at work and home. I have a collection of animals; dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks, chickens, and quail, as well as three children, which keep me very busy!

Emily Charlotte Elgar, 2nd year student Vet Nurse .

I joined White Lodge in 2014 to help with social media, website management, reception, and everything inbetween! I moved over to the 'green team' of Veterinary Nursing' in September 2016.      

I enjoy riding my horse Bodie, who I hope to start eventing, which will be a big change as I've always preferred dressage – as a junior, I represented the South East at national level dressage, and rode for both international dressage and event riders.

Since moving to Exmoor from Kent, I love exploring the coast by kayaking and paddleboarding with my border collie - Lottie, which I'm trying to convince my Romanian rescue dog - Lola, to enjoy aswell! Finally coming home to be greeted by five cats is always nice after a busy day at work.

Jayne Pettit, 2nd year student Vet Nurse.

It was always my goal to become a Vet Nurse, and after years of being a dental nurse, I have finally made the jump! Although it is incredibly hard work with the long working hours and full time coursework, I am so happy to finally be doing what I love.

I have two horses, Tao and Tango that I am currently learning to ride. I also have family of ferrets and a staffie

Although I love the variety of mixed practice, as it completely mirrors my life at home, my goal is to become an Equine Nurse, the new practice at Ellicombe allows me to see a wide range of Equine operations, with clients travelling from Bristol, Exeter and further to see our equine vets.
