Louise Richards

Louise Richards

Louise started at Burghley over 10 years ago in our Stamford branch.

She enjoys the excitement of making sure that the reception works smoothly and greeting our patients and clients.

Outside of work Louise enjoys socialising, listening to music and family holidays. She has two children who make sure that any spare time she has does not go to waste as well as two cats and a tortoise.

Gill Budd

Gill Budd – Receptionist

I currently have two cats – one of whom seems to think he is actually a dog – he likes doing tricks, playing ‘fetch’ and even responds to a whistle. At work I relish the chance to assist the vets with patients as
well as assisting their owners at the reception desk and over the telephone. Relaxation for me is reading, music, history and nature.

Escape is peace and quiet – walking on a beach or through woodland…. preferably (but not essentially) with warmth and sunshine.

Juliette Nelson

Juliette Nelson – Receptionist

I enjoy meeting new people, I love to go horse riding, dog walking and meeting up with friends. I am part of Stamford Prides keep Stamford clear of litter and best of all is snuggling on the sofa with my 3 cats watching films.
