The Team


ian Tracey jessica abi helen Gill lauren kate sarah

Gill Browne


A graduate from Glasgow Veterinary School, I started working at Alexander Veterinary Centre when it was first based at No.1 Hartington Street and have watched it flourish and expand over the past twenty years. I have always enjoyed every aspect of small animal medicine but find dealing with my geriatric patients especially rewarding. Dentistry has become a routine part of the daily workload and a discipline which I both find challenging and satisfying and so beneficial to our patients. Away from work I enjoy orienteering, both competing and coaching, and walking the fells with our three black Labradors.


I feel very fortunate to have such a varied and rewarding job and have the privilege to meet and care for so many super pets and their owners.

Ian Gibson


I qualified from the University of Liverpool in 1996. For the last 15 years I have worked in solely companion animal practices caring for dogs, cats and small furries. I moved up from East Sussex in 2007 to join the team at Alexander Veterinary Centre and to enjoy the Lake District. When not working I’m probably out walking with our two dogs in the fells.

Kate Hornby


I graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2009.  Since then I have worked in several small animal practices in the North West, slowly working my way back home to Furness.  I joined Alexander Veterinary Centre in June 2014 after a short maternity break to have my daughter Annabel.  I find my job both challenging and very rewarding. I enjoy all aspects of small animal practice but I have a particular soft spot for cats and their welfare. When I am not a work I love my family time with Annabel and my husband David.  I also enjoy fellwalking.

Nursing Staff & Receptionists

Jessica Flood


I started working at the practice in March 2013 and I have gained the Animal Nursing Assistant Qualification. I really enjoy working here and have learnt so many new things. In my spare time I love galloping my horse along the beach and taking my dog for long walks in the Lake District. I am interested in all animals, big and small, but in particular equine and exotics.

Abigail Fowler


I joined the practice in January 2015 after studying Animal Management at Lancaster and Morecambe college.  I am looking forward to studying for the Animal Nursing Assistant qualification after I have settled in and gained experience of working in a veterinary practice. In my spare time I like walking with my Italian Spinone Walter, spending time with my family, eating out and going to concerts and festivals with friends.

Helen Jackson


I joined the practice in April 2008, since working at Alexander Veterinary Centre I have gained NVQ Level 2 in Business and Administration, retail skills and have recently completed my Level 3 in Customer Service. In my spare time I like to read and walk my standard Poodle Ellie. I also have 3 cats, Martha, Noel and Scrubs.

Lauren Milby


After qualifying as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2013, I joined the practice in December 2014. I have an interest in orthopaedic surgery and post-operative care. I enjoy walking my cocker spaniel, George, and spending time with my friends.

Sarah Lodge


I began working for the practice in January 2005 as a receptionist and went on to complete my Animal Nursing Assistant Level 2 Qualification. I took a maternity break in 2012 to have my daughter Sally and returned to work part time in February 2013. I live in Dalton with my husband, daughter and our scruffy old lurcher Lucy who gets lots of walks in my spare time.


Katie Moir


After graduating from Birmingham Institute of Art and Design in 2009 I spent 8 months travelling where I got the opportunity to work on a tourist farm/zoo in Australia. It was this that made me want to work further with animals. I joined the practice in August 2011 and I have since gained a qualification as an Animal Nursing Assistant. I live in Ulverston with my cat, Ozzy, and in my spare time I enjoy cooking and baking, walking with my family and dog, Cass, and going to gigs and festivals with my friends.
