Name: Vicky Bassett
Job title: Nutritional Advisor
I started in Burns in 2007 and I have worked in various areas of the company. Prior to joining the nutrition team I was out on the road as a Field Sales Representatives which has enabled me to learn about the other foods on the market, this is helpful when speaking to a new customers looking to move to Burns as I often already know about the food they are currently feeding. I have been on the nutrition team for 4 years and I love helping people with their nutritional queries, being office based has also given me time to do several courses such as Canine Anatomy and Physiology.
You will often see me at shows as I love getting to go to new places and enjoy meeting members of the public to chat about their pets and give nutrition advice, my next show is in Madrid (so you can see why I like to put my name forward!). I also particularly enjoy holding training sessions and giving presentations about the Burns products to other members of the Burns team as well as rescue centres and Burns stockists.
I am a total bookworm so in my spare time I do like to cwtch up with a book, thrillers are a favourite.
I asked my colleagues to describe me as a dog breed – Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen. They are lively, enthusiastic and curious. They also have a “good voice, freely used”!
