Des Whittall - Group Manager
When Dr. Louisa and I bought BCRAH in 2012, I had never worked in a veterinary hospital and didn’t really know how I would fit into this role. I now know it is pretty much all of the things you don’t normally think of in a vet hospital, but that none the less have to get done. While BCRAH is the first clinic I’ve worked in, my Grandfather was a vet in the UK so I’ve seen the practice since I was very small. I was also lucky enough to grow up in a small business, watching and learning from my parents. That experience, along with my background in finance and technology has helped me make the transition from working for a large bank to where we are now.
As the group manager, I oversee the operations and businesses that are BCRAH and the Resort for Pets. I work closely with the management team to ensure that we achieve our ambitions for quality of care and ensuring that each client and pet that we come into contact with is treated as our own. I love the opportunity to make a difference – to help build an exceptional medical facility where we offer pets and clients the opportunity to receive the best care possible as well as a beautiful Resort where you can drop off your pets to have as great a vacation as you are. I get to help facilitate that, be a part of our day-to- day operations and work with a wonderful team. All the while, we continue to grow and provide new services and options so we can help all of our patients stay healthy and happy.
Outside of work most of my time is spent with my family. Dr. Louisa and I have 2 children, Charlotte and Ivy – you will see both of them around the hospital from time to time. I also enjoy playing computer games when I get the time. We also have 3 cats, Bubble, a black and white moggy rescued from a farm in North Wales when I was still in college; Malcolm, who Dr. Louisa rescued from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, and Zeus, our Burmese who came from a rescue in Florida! We also have 2 rescued dogs, a Terrier mix named Wolfie and a Beagle mix, Odie. I guess I never planned to have quite that many pets but when you’re married to a veterinarian, it’s an important part of your life.
J-D - Practice Manager
Having graduated from Texas A&M in 2008 with a bachelors in Animal science and formal training as a technician for several years, I have a great love and understanding of many different types of animals.
Having more than 10 years of experience within the customer service industry while working with a diverse colleague base, I have had the opportunity to learn and grow every day. I always look forward to interacting with new people and their pets.
I have always had a natural connection with animals of all shapes and sizes, anything from birds, fish, cats, dogs including a blind Shar Pei and even a 6 foot red tailed boa. I have had the pleasure of sharing my home with all of these wonderful and varied personalities.
