The Equivet Office Team

Without the great team work and invaluable service provided by the Equivet office staff, practice life would be almost impossible. You've no-doubt spoken to the team members on the phone, so now you can put a face to the names.

Vicky Mitchell

Vicky joined our Equivet office team in March 2015.

After completing an equine management course and BHS exams, she spent time working at a riding school in Hampshire.

In 2007 she joined the accounts department at a large specialist equine hospital in Hampshire before moving to Equivet.

Vicky has ridden from a young age and enjoys looking after her 4 Welsh Cobs and her dog. When she has time she competes her ponies in affiliated Mountain and Moorland showing classes.

Sherri Straker

Sherri joined the Equivet team in 2016 and works on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Prior to this Sherri was part of the Rivendell Veterinary Group's equine office, working at the Greyfriars' Equine Unit, before the Rivendell Equine and Equivet practices  joined in November 2016.

Sherri was born and raised in Southern California, USA. There she was fortunate enough not only to be raised within a horse loving (and owning) family, but also to be close to the beach. Whilst on the California coast she worked with the horses at home whilst also volunteering for many years with a marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation centre, putting her biology degree to good use.

In addition to animals, water sports and travelling, Sherri's passion is small aircraft and when on her days off from Equivet she is almost always found organising and getting involved in flying and aerial photography.

Philippa Lester

Philippa joined the Equivet office team in May 2017 and works on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

The rest of her week is spent running her competition and breeding yard with her family. Prior to joining Equivet, Philippa successfully ran a large livery yard and riding school in the south of England, before leaving due to ill health. Philippa is also a fully qualified riding instructor as well as a RDA instructor, which means she's often busy teaching in her "spare" time!

Having competed in many disciplines over the years Philippa now specialises in dressage and can be found out and about competing on a regular basis or acting as a groom for her showjumping sons!
