Our Veterinary Practice Team

Lisa Marie Parker BVSC MRCVS (Veterinary Surgeon)

I graduated from Bristol University in 2014 and enjoyed a few years in both small animal and equine practice in the Midlands before starting at Cherry Tree. I have an interest in small animal internal medicine and look forward to starting a certificate in this field.

I am originally from Leicestershire and my husband and I now live locally. Outside of work I enjoy riding competitively in eventing and on a sunny weekend you will find me riding in the beautiful countryside around the area with our three Weimaraner dogs in tow.

My favourite part of being a vet is seeing an emergency case where our treatment saves the life of the animal and allows them to go home to their family.

Clare Hamilton Vet MB MA MRCVS (Partner)

I graduated as a vet from Cambridge University in July 2005 and have worked exclusively in small animal practice for the past seven years.

I grew up very close to Lane End near a little place called Southend Common. I love the area and it has always been my hope to return here to be part of the community again.

I met my husband Michael at University and we have been married since 2009. We share our home with a very naughty cat called Winston and our slightly less naughty little dog Sausage.

My favourite thing about my life as a veterinary surgeon is being able to help people and their pets through difficult times. There are not many jobs where you can go home at night feeling like you have made a difference.

Alice Ruel BVSc MRCVS (Veterinary Surgeon)

I graduated from Bristol University in July 2003. I have spent most of my career working in small animal practice in the West country. I have developed a special interest in ophthalmology and hope to study for a certificate in the future.

I live in Henley and have a young family. We also own a beautiful, old Golden Retriever called Barney. Barney is a fantastic, family dog and is very patient with my little boy! Our latest addition to the family is Portly the cat, who was a rescue from Cherry Tree.

The most enjoyable thing about being a Vet is following an animal through to complete recovary. There is nothing more rewarding!

Fiona White (Nursing assistant)

I am a recent addition to the team at Cherry Tree. I used to live around the Lane End area when I was younger but now I live just outside London with my mischievous cat Sweep.

I started at Cherry Tree over six months ago which started my career in a job that I am passionate about and where I can help animals and people through being a nursing assistant.

I spend a lot of my time maintaining the high levels of cleanliness throughout the practice but I also assist in providing great care for each patient that comes into cherry tree from the moment they arrive to when they leave, following lots of cuddles!
