Female head vet Julia James.

Julia James – MA VetMB MRCVS

Hi, I’m Julia James and I am a Senior Partner at Larkmead, as well as a Large Animal Vet. During my studies at Cambridge in 1996, I joined Larkmead as a student and shortly afterwards came on board full time following my graduation. I specialise in the large animal area of the practice working with a large variety of animals, and clients, on a daily basis.

The best thing about my job is absolutely the clients. Spending time with them on their farms, trying to look after the health and welfare of their herds to benefit them and their business as well and having a good catch up is what makes every day different; worthwhile and so rewarding. I really feel fortunate to be working with such a great variety of people and business owners in my role.

At home I have a cat, Ted, and I enjoy running, swimming – especially in the lake! And I take part in triathlons every so often.
