Ashlee – Client Services

Ashlee joined the EAMC team in 2023 to help with our busy reception area and phones. After some extensive time studying and travelling and living abroad, Ashlee found herself exactly where her five year old self always hoped she’d be: working in a vet clinic. Ashlee loves spending her time taking care of her silly dogs, Koda the Bull Arab X and Shiloh the English Cocker Spaniel and her two cats, Mew and Mushy. When she is not sneaking in as many pats as she can at reception, Ashlee enjoys spending her spare time playing video games, reading, photographing anything she can and drawing.

She shares a home with two cheeky rescue cats.  Her all-time favourite animal is a Cheetah, and while we don’t get to see these at EAMC I’m sure some of our feline patients are quite reminiscent! As well as being a cat lover, Bec loves all the birds we get to see here at EAMC. Her most rewarding part of the job is caring for patients through surgery and seeing them go home at the end of the day. In her spare time she enjoys getting lost a good fantasy book.
