Reception Staff

Meet the highly qualified and caring reception staff at St David Veterinary Centre.

Veterinary Administration

Leanne Brown

Practice Manager

Leanne became the surgery’s practice manager in 2015 having joined the surgery in 2008. Leanne splits her time between both surgeries. Whilst already having two dogs there is always the risk of many more as she struggles not to take home every new puppy that visits the surgery.

Rita Gibbs

Receptionist

Rita joined the surgery in 2013 as a part time receptionist. Having spent her working life in an office she loves her time on reception and wonders how she’d worked in an office for so long. Rita has a deep affection and soft side for the pets that visit the surgery and is often seen talking to the animals as if they were her own. She has a pet cat called Kizzie and is considering a French Bulldog one day.

Receptionist

“I joined the surgery in July 2015 as a part time receptionist and am now full time. I love every part of my job.
I moved to Cardiff from London in 2003 and haven’t looked back.
I have 2 great boys and my beautiful springer phoebe, we enjoy going on long walks.
As much as I love all the puppies, I have found I have a soft spot for large breed dogs, they are beautiful gentle giants.”

I’m Jo I’ve  been working at St Davids since May 2021. After 4 weeks of my employment I adopted a stray cat that was brought into the surgery and have named her Lulubelle, I have another cat called Olga. Watch this space…. maybe another cat might come home with me. My hobbies are Cooking, dining out and going to watch live music events. I’m enjoying working at St Davids and look forward to the future and what everyday brings.
