Nora Shackleford

Clinical Manager

Nora is GVC’s Clinical Manager and has been a part of the GVC family since 2014. Nora joined GVC as a massively talented Veterinary Nurse and quickly demonstrated the skills, knowledge and all-round capability to become an excellent Head Nurse, a role that she fulfilled successfully for several years whilst progressing into a senior management position. In 2020, Nora took on the dual responsibility as Operations Manager and Head Nurse before being promoted into the role of Clinical Manager, with full responsibility for the clinical team.

Nora graduated as a Veterinary Nurse from Mallow College in Ireland in 2011. While studying, she spent 4 years working at The Cat Hospital – Ireland’s first cat-only veterinary hospital. She has highly specialist skills in looking after our feline patients and has played an instrumental role in transforming GVC into the Middle East’s first Cat Friendly Clinic.

Nora has made it her life’s mission to improve the lives and welfare of all the cats she meets and is very passionate about educating owners and colleagues about proper cat care.

In her spare time, Nora loves yoga, travel, and was the World Champion in Tae Kwan Do in 2002. She also loves spending time with her husband and two beautiful daughters as well as their three cats, Freddy Pants, Pumpkin, and Barry!
