Rachel Woodward - Veterinary Nurse
Rachel Woodward RVN NCert(SAN) Veterinary Nurse

Rachel joined Vale Vets and Referrals in 2016 and has been an RVN for 7 years. Starting as a full-time veterinary nurse, rotating through all departments of the hospital, it was during this time, she found her love for nursing clinics. Rachel developed a passion for nutrition and completed her Nurses Certificate in Small Animal Nutrition in 2021. 

Now, Rachel works part-time as a consulting nurse with the occasional theatre shift to ensure her skills are kept up to date. She is currently studying for the Certificate in Veterinary Nurse Consulting with an aim to achieve this by November 2023. 

Rachel enjoys getting to know her clients and their pets, many of whom become regulars and she can watch the pets grow over the years. One of the most satisfying parts of her role is running nutritional consultations, particularly the challenge of solving a nutritional conundrum and seeing pets thrive when a problem is solved.  

At home, Rachel is a mum to two young boys (human!) and two terriers, Wilbur and Betsy. She also volunteers for a local charity run playgroup overseeing their website, social media and fundraising projects. On her days off, she enjoys family days out, camping in her van and knitting!
