Jessica Thorogood

Customer Services Manager

I have been at Uplands Way Vets since 2012 and I am based at all the surgeries. I have worked in this industry for over 13 years and love every aspect of my job.  I am a Qualified Veterinary Nursing Assistant and also hold 2 other Diplomas, one in Animal Science and another in Animal Management and Care. I have also just enrolled on to a new course which is a Diploma in Monitoring Anaesthesia in small animals which I am very excited about!

In my spare time I enjoy riding and looking after my Irish sport horse Gem, I enjoy taking her to the woods for lovely long hacks and also for days out at the beach. I also have a Springer Spaniel called Lupo, three cats and two guinea pigs!

I have been a receptionist for Uplands Way Vets for 17 years now, so there are not many owners or animals I have not met!

You will see me at the Diss clinic every afternoon.

Hi I’m Helen and I have worked part time at the Stanton clinic for nearly nine years. I cover reception and assist the vet when required. When not at work I can be found helping out on my parents’ farm or providing a taxi service for my daughter and her friends. I have a selection of pets, which include two guinea pigs, a ginger cat, a retired racehorse and five llamas.
In any spare time I have I enjoy swimming, horse riding and learning new crafts. Maybe one day I will get round to spinning my llamas’ fibre/wool and make something useful out of it.

I moved to Bressingham in 2014 after working for ten years at a vets practice in Pinner, Middlesex.  I missed everything the job involves, so was very happy to start working for Uplands Way vets in November 2017.  My time away from the reception desk is filled with my lovely little rescue Chihuahua ‘Skippy’, who likes nothing better that to snuggle up for a nap on any available lap! I also enjoy getting involved in many of the Villages activities, and can often be found at local events.

I joined Uplands Way Vets in August 2017 as a receptionist at Attleborough and Bressingham.  I enjoy unaffiliated showjumping on my horse Timmy, walking my dog Amber on the beach and I used to live in Michigan, USA. My ambition is to become a veterinary nurse.
