Yvonne was born in the Netherlands. After a lot of travelling and working in hospitality, she decided to make her dream come true and studied veterinary nursing in the Netherlands qualifying in 2014. Yvonne joined the Village Vet team in April 2017 and works full time at the St John’s Wood practice.
She loves her job as a veterinary nurse and thinks it is just great to be able to do what you really passionate about. Yvonne is responsible for the care of the inpatients, meeting with owners monitoring anaesthetics, maintaining the supplies for the practice and is also involved in nurse consults.
Outside of work, Yvonne is very active, cycling in daily from North London where she lives with Simba the three-legged ginger cat and her fiance. She has previously lived in South Africa, Spain and in the French Alpes. She loves food, cooking, travel, motorbikes, mountains, snowboarding, paragliding and running.
