Lorraine Davis – Practice Administrator
I have worked for Woodlands since March 1999 having started as a receptionist, moving onto nursing and currently as a Practice Administrator. I have most recently gained a Diploma in Management after taking my ILM level 5 Diploma through UMD Professional. I am hoping to go on and achieve the VPMA’s Management Certificate also.
I have always been involved with animals since learning to ride at the age of 4 and qualifying as a riding instructor in 1994. I then went on to start my nursing training in 1997 but never got the chance to complete my training due to relocating.
I now live with my Partner of 14 years, who is a Professional Wildlife Artist and experienced Falconer. We have an ever increasing collection of animals, from a Cat and and 2 Dogs to Falcons, Owls and Hawks, most of which are worked and hunted and others that come to us via Veterinary Practices and the RSPCA as casualties in the hope of rehabilitation. Some of our birds are also used in Education, Instruction & Falconry Courses that my partner teaches. As well as the larger birds, we also take in and hand rear dozens of garden birds & other wildlife, each year ranging from Swifts to Hares and pride ourselves in a good success rate. The most recent addition to our tribe is our hand reared Fallow Deer called “Hazel”. On the rare occasion I have some spare time I enjoy making jewelry and still like to ride as often as I can.
