Jane Best

Jane Best

Office Manager

Jane joined Colin Bond whilst he was still at Denbie View in Dorking. She is almost essential to the functioning of the practice, particularly when it comes to accounts, appointments and just knowing the needs and whims of the clients. In addition to the vets, Jane now acts as advisor on insurance matters to the clients.

Her practical knowledge and reasoned advice on the telephone is invaluable to the directors and clients alike.
To keep up with the burgeoning staff dog menagerie, Jane now has two Labradors which has allowed her to add gun dog training to her sporting, family and social commitments.

Sam Wallington

Sam Wallington

Administrator

Sam has been with the practice since 2007. Prior to joining us Sam worked for Vetlab (now known as Idexx) a veterinary laboratory, administering lab reports. Sam holds an ABRS ITA which is a first stage riding instructors certificate and has taught freelance and in riding schools in the local area. For the first 18 months Sam split her working hours between office administration and the nursing and pharmacy departments. This enabled her to gain a wider knowledge of the different rolls within the practice.

In 2009, Sam went full time in the office where she has proved to be an invaluable member of the team. Sam is happily married to Ben and has a daughter called Frankie.
