Simon Smith
Simon Smith Animal Care Assistant

Simon completed his Level 3 Animal Management at Kirkley Hall in 2019, and spent 5 years volunteering at Pets Corner in Jesmond.  He has also volunteered at Kirkley Hall Zoo, gaining experience in a huge range of animals from farm animals to exotics, as well as spending time working in South Africa on a game reserve. 

Simon comes from a large Italian family that has its roots in the small village of Spinazzola in Southern Italy.

Simon joined the Moorview Referrals team in winter 2019 as an Animal Care Assistant.  He hopes to achieve his life goal of becoming a vet himself. 

In his spare time Simon likes to cycle, run and generally keep fit.  In the past he has had a range of pets ranging from dogs, small furries and fish.  Simon has recently acquired a new addition to his family in the form of a German Shepherd puppy, but he also has a soft spot for dachshunds.
