Kent Region

Siobhan is excited about running her first Kent region meetings in 2018! She already hosted her first meeting of 2018 on Thursday 26th April 2018. As the photo shows, this meeting was well received in the region. On Thursday 17th May 2018 Siobhan then hosted Practice Performance and Culture PLUS Client Retention during Pet Loss by the experts at VetLed and Blue Cross in Maidstone. Following this meeting Siobhan gave the following assessment:

“VMG Kent Regional Roadshow No2 in Maidstone Kent with Lisanne from Blue Cross & Dan from VetLed- covering Client Retention in Pet Loss & Practice Performance -such inspirational speakers! Delegates were treated to an afternoon packed with information, group activities and advice, followed by Q&As – we just didn’t want it to stop! Fantastic!!” The photos show what a super meeting it was!

Siobhan’s region is really gathering momentum and she is already planning another year of activity in 2019 so keep a look out!


Siobhan Park Regional Organiser

I am Practice Manager at Newnham Court Veterinary Hospital in Maidstone, Kent. Having come from a Teaching background I am happy to now be pursuing my career within the veterinary business. With 19 years plus experience teaching, supporting and inspiring future generations; I am enthused by the role of Practice Manager.

Animals have always been important to me throughout my life; I even weaved a role as a Pets As Therapy Dog, for my Black Lab ‘Bella’ into my teaching role, and I have recently become very interested in the work and research of Medical Detection Dogs.  I am also lucky enough to have 2 cats, a Jack Russell and to have shared 16 wonderful years with my late horse Hannah- who sadly I had to say a sad farewell to in April 2016! I now spend as much time as I can enjoying the countryside walking with my dogs!

I owe my interest in VMG to Rita Dingwall former 2 x President of VPMA. I was lucky enough to have worked with her in my role as Business Development Manager at Milbourn Equine. She instilled in me the important role VPMA, now VMG,  plays in the development of, not only self growth but that of your team and the business. With this in mind, it is my hope that in the role of Regional Organiser, I will help to continue to spread the word & promote VMG; engaging with members, networking and supporting them in their roles.
