Shirley Price-Jones, LLB (Hons) Business Law - Practice Manager
Shirley joined the Tysul Vets in November 2012 as Practice Manager to join her husband Robert with the day to day running of the practice in preparation for the retirement of Partner Peter Cule the following April. Shirley's background was in recruitment, personnel and in teaching and training in adult and community education. Although she had not previously worked in the veterinary or agricultural arena she would say that over 20 years as a vets wife and dealing with out of hours emergency phone calls for many years - she has had a lot of preparation for the job.
The role of practice manager is varied and no two days are the same. With a staff of 25 plus there is never a dull moment.
When not a Tysul Vets, Shirley enjoys researching local and family history, cooking, walking her dog and spending time with her children, Alex and Sophie.
