OUR PENMELLYN AUXILLIARY STAFF
Krystina is our cleaner who is responsible for all the areas on the first floor of our practice.
She is Cornish and has lived in the St Columb area all of her life.
She enjoys keeping the practice clean and tidy so that it can run smoothly and her friendly manner (and the fact she leaves a clean building) helps to keep other staff happy too.
Outside of work she is interested in walking, travelling (including visiting historic places) and line dancing. She has a dog called Merlin.
Emma Hackett BSc (Hons)
Emma has a HND in equine science and a BSc (Hons) in animal science (equine).
She is one of our equine grooms and is responsible for the day to day tasks of looking after the hospitalised horses.
Emma is the daughter of a midwife and funeral director and comes from Cornwall. Outside of work Emma’s interests include cross-stitch, church, walking, chickens, rug making and she volunteers for the National Trust at Trerice Manor working in the gardens and dressing up and dressing people in Tudor style.
She has two miniature Shetland ponies, one cat and several chickens, and she is a volunteer dog walker for the Cinnamon Trust.
Phil has an HND in motor vehicle engineering and works for us as a member of our maintenance staff. He moved to Cornwall in 1984 to start a wholesale and retail fruit and vegetable business which he ran until a car accident led to a life change in 2003.
He joined Penmellyn in 2005 and now works in the Storeroom receiving and distributing the day to day deliveries to the practice.
Away from work Phil enjoys watching all motor sports, horse racing and travel. He also likes spending time with his very spoilt cat called Robbie.
