Mrs Mel Barnes: RVN Head Veterinary Nurse

Department: Vet Nurses

Mel qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2009 and has worked in practice ever since. After training at a referral hospital in Exeter, she stayed working with referral until taking on the role of Head Nurse here at Powderham Veterinary Group. She has been part of the team since November 2017, although did spend some time doing work experience here back in 2005. Mel has many pets, including some more unusual ones such as snakes and lizards! When not working, Mel can be found horse riding one of her two ponies and occasionally races rally cars nationally.
