I joined the Carlyle team over ten years ago. My primary role is checking on our patients by email, text, and phone to check on their progress and how their treatments have gone. I also manage all revisits for blood tests, annual health checks, vaccinations, worm and flea reminders and man reception when required.

I have had a huge interest In animals all my life having bred and shown horses and ponies bred and shown Labradors for over 25 years. I imported five Labradors from Australia and reared calves for many years, as well as loving many cats along the way. Birmans and silver tabbies are my favourites.

I have recently celebrated my fiftieth wedding anniversary with my husband Colin. I have one daughter and three granddaughters. My interests outside of work are showing my dogs, caring for them, lawn bowls, cycling, playing Majhong, and travelling in the motorhome.

Retirement does not seem to be in the near future for Sharon. She is such an integral part of Carlyle’s daily success.
