Emily Roome – Practice Manager

Emily Roome is the Practice Manager of Pride Veterinary Centre and the branches and has a very varied job that makes no two days the same. Being Practice Manager means that she gets to meet many different people, helping out on reception and also getting involved with clients and animals alike.

Emily started working for Scarsdale Vets in 2010.  Coming from a catering background, she decided that it was time to do something different and has never looked back since. Emily responsibilities range from managing the front of house staff to coordinating events and ensuring all our buildings are in good condition.

In her free time, Emily likes to spend time with her family and going on bike rides.
