Karen joined Cliffe Veterinary Group in 2004, having worked in various administrative roles.
She is mainly based at our Lewes surgery but can often be seen at either our Equine Clinic or
one of our branch surgeries at Ringmer or Woodingdean dealing with the problems which arise
in a busy veterinary practice. Her role of Practice Manager is very varied from administrative
duties or personnel issues to sorting IT problems or dog sitting the Vets dogs!
Away from the Practice she enjoys nothing better than a walk in the countryside with her dog Daisy.
In 1997 Jo joined the Practice as our Farm Secretary, and has become the first point of contact
for our local farming community. Her day involves arranging farm visits for our team of four
Farm Veterinary Surgeons as well as working out the rota system for our Small Animal Department. She also has the unenviable task of dealing with Government Representatives with regard to legislation and TB testing. The majority of her time is spent with our local Farmers which she knows on first name terms.
Accounts & Office Administration
Anji started work at CVG back in 1995 when the Practice was much smaller and has seen it
grow from the Surgery in Lewes to the Practice it is today with two additional branch surgeries
& a large equine clinic. It is a Practice joke that she has worked in almost every room in the
Lewes surgery as the admin office has been moved many times to accommodate other
departments. It is very rare for you to see Anji without one of her many collies which she
trains for agility.
After having worked for two other veterinary practices locally she decided a change of career
was needed and started working for the Fire Service where she soon realised she missed the veterinary profession so when we advertised in 2008 for an additional admin. assistant she
applied immediately. Recently she has taken on the role of Human Resources Administrator.
Lesley is another member of staff with a horse and 5 cats.
Since 1999 Kim has been a regular face behind our reception desk
at Lewes, and as a local girl is known by many of our clients. She holds the position of Reception Coordinator and one of her many tasks is to ensure the reception desk at each of our three small animal surgeries is manned.
All members of our reception team cover shifts at our Lewes surgery; however the Ringmer team consists of Lesley, Linda & Leah & the Woodingdean team Rebecca, Anne & Leah.
Lesley is one of our longest serving members of staff having joined in 1998, and can often be heard singing.
Linda a friend of Lesley’s for many years joined the team in 2006 & with Lesley has the responsibility of updating many of our information boards.
Charlotte having worked for many years in farming decided this year to have a change in career and joined us in January 2009.
