Sophie Melville – Animal Nursing Assistant

Sophie grew up in Highcliffe attending primary and secondary school there. She went on to study Art, Photography and Media Studies A-levels at sixth form, which progressed to achieving a degree in Make-Up for Media and Performance at Arts Bournemouth University.  Sophie carried on her love of make-up through working on different events and films.

Sophie has always worked with the public through waitressing at local cafes and restaurants for several years but decided to look for a new career path altogether. And that is when she found Natterjacks! Sophie joined Natterjacks in February 2018 as a receptionist and is enjoying every moment, working alongside the lovely team and of course the variety of pets she meets. She has always had a love for animals from a young age and could not be without her lurcher cross George who she got from the RSPCA at Ashley Heath.
