Catherine is the clinical director at our Corby practice, and has been with Northlands Group since she qualified in 1996 – seeing many changes within the profession and the group in that time. She is the proud owner of Bryan – named by her son after his favourite actor in Baby’s Day Out – a rescued ginger cat who, unfortunately, is a prolific hunter. She enjoys all areas of veterinary practice both medical and surgical, and describes herself as a true general practitioner.
Jackie has worked as a receptionist at Northlands Corby since 2011, having previously worked in offices across a variety of different sectors, including 16 years in a vets in the north east. Her personal life is centred around a Tibetan Terrier, who is an absolute delight, but was a bit of a nightmare as a puppy! She has owned and shown sheepdogs for 30 years all over the country. Her other love is Formula 1, which I have travelled the world to follow.
Pauline has been with Northlands for just over 14 years and works in both our Corby branch and our hospital in Kettering. She has worked with pets since she was 16 – including roles in boarding kennels, a pet shop and a short stint as a dog warden – and has qualified with the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers. Although she doesn’t have any pets at the moment she has previously happily owned German shepherds, a springer spaniel and a cat.
