Kelly Hayhow

Head Receptionist and Pharmacy Assistant

I started working at Moloney Vets in Braintree when I was 14, as a kennel assistant.  When I left school in 1995 I started to train as a veterinary nurse.  I continued to study and work for 10 years and became Head Nurse in the Braintree then at their Halstead branch.  I took a career break to have my family which have kept me busy since!

I was fortunate enough to be offered a job as a veterinary receptionist here which fits perfectly with my family life.   In 2018 I was promoted Senior Receptionist then Head receptionist in 2021.  I also work in our pharmacy.

I love meeting and greeting people and using my previous experience on reception to help our clients and their pets.   I have a very keen interest in wildlife and rescue / rehabilitate a wide range of species from fallow dear, foxes and badgers to swans, blackbirds, hedgehogs and ducks.

I love spending time with my family and our pets.  I have five rescued cats and a gorgeous chocolate Labrador called Flo.
