After 20 years of working as a Law Courts Draftsman, Karen decided it was time for a change and wanted to do something that embraced her passion – animals. In fact Karen was so eager to work with animals that she attended an interview and didn’t even know what the vacancy was!  That was back in August 2009 and Karen has been working as Receptionist at our Tutbury branch ever since.

In her spare time Karen looks after her family including 3 dogs, 6 cats, 4 guinea pigs, 2 children and last but not least her husband Richard.  Karen enjoys long walks with her dogs and loves the countryside.  Karen is also a keen gardener and genealogist.
