Griet Monsieur DVM MRCVS
Griet is originally from Belgium and graduated from Ghent University Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in 1992. She moved to the UK in 1993 to start her career in veterinary practice. From 1995 to 2006 she worked at the Avenue Veterinary Surgery but left the practice to do locum work. This gave Griet flexibility to balance work and time with family in Belgium. It has allowed Griet to work in lots of different practices throughout the UK and gain valuable experience. We were pleased to welcome her back to the surgery in 2011 and she has been working for us on a part time basis ever since. Griet has a Border Collie called Ruby. In her spare time she enjoys walking and travelling with her partner Michael and Ruby.
