Bea graduated from Cambridge University in 2017 as a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, and with a first-class undergraduate degree in the History and Philosophy of Science.

Bea loves all animals but her passion in life is dogs. She currently has a 2 year old Pyrenean Sheepdog called Tabi. They enjoy training and competing together in a range of activities including agility, hoopers, scent work, and sheep herding. Bea also competes in agility with her Mum's 4 year old Beauceron, Cass.

Vet

BVSc MRCVS

I graduated as a vet in 2014 in dusty Safari Riddled South Africa and decided to make the Trek to the UK as most Saffas are in the habit of doing. I am very happy to have settled down at Windlesham and find the atmosphere energetic, fun and friendly.

I carry great passion for animals, and couldn’t imagine a day of work without them. You may glimpse me being dragged by my Silly Staffie through the forests in the area- don’t worry- it's a controlled drag, I promise!

In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, running, swimming and cycling. I also enjoy wine.

Izzy Taylor

Practice Manager

Since I was a little girl growing up in South Africa, my lifelong dream was to be able to help animals. Initially starting off as a veterinary nurse and then taking time out to have my two children, I returned to a new role as the Practice Manager.

Having been in the veterinary profession for almost 20 years, I can positively say that Windlesham Village Vets is one of the very few unique practices that care for pets and their owners as though they were their own. I feel very proud to be part of our amazing team and welcome any suggestions or feedback that would help you and your pets.
