LUVZS Committee 2018/19- Who We Are
President – Tobias Hunter
Bit About Yourself: I'm in my second year of Vet School and I've been elected to be your LUVZS President for this year. I've grown up in a Polish family and am very proud of my heritage so don't be surprised if I don't stop talking about how amazing Poland is. I also have a huge passion for exotic animals from small furries like ferrets and guinea pigs to reptiles like snakes and tortoises. I'm really looking forward to running the committee and bring you loads of fantastic talks and events.
Favourite Animal: Wolves
Vice President – Gurpawan Khalsa
Bit About Yourself: I am bubbly, friendly and a very social person. I love organising events, running events and having a good time. I love all animals especially large mammals (zoo) and other exotics. My love for large mammals comes from East Africa as my family are from there. And I go on holiday to Kenya so if anyone wants some travelling tips just holla.
And I think we will have a wonderful busy year together!! We got this :)
Favourite Animal: Giraffe.
Secretary – Charlie Roper
Bit About Yourself: I'm a big lover of reptiles and happy to be on the committee for my third year :) I currently own a corn snake, a boa, a beardie and 2 lovely cats! I hope to go into mixed exotic and smallies practice in the future and I'm intercalating in veterinary conservation medicine this year. I'm also a peer supporter for the vet school :)
Favourite Animal: Clouded leopard
Treasurer – Victoria King
Bit About Yourself: I’ve been on the committee for three years now and I’ve loved every second. I have two rabbits and a dog back home in Bristol! I have a real interest in both zoo work and small furries.
Favourite Animal: Orca

Charity rep – Klara Hunt
Bit About yourself: I am from Wales but I was born in Norway and grew up in Abu Dhabi. I am very passionate about travelling! I am currently in second year and aspire to go into mixed exotic and small practice abroad somewhere sunny! I can’t wait to become involved with LUVZS and I am currently looking at some great charities!
Favourite animal: Pangolin
Junior Leahurst Rep - Beth Hunt
Bit About Yourself: I was last year's trip abroad rep and I had a great time organising a trip to Copenhagen which turned out to be really successful - I'm looking forwards to another year on the committee! I have a particular love for British wildlife and will most likely spend a great deal of my time in practice trying to save foxes and badgers and basically any animal that needs help!
Favourite Animal: Fox
Senior Leahurst Rep - Tayer Maggs
Bit about yourself: Having been on the committee for the last two years, one in the role of President, I am looking forward to continuing our work over the water. My interest in exotics started young and I hope to one day work in the field. Vet school has shown I have quite a keen interest in metabolic diseases so it'll be interesting to see if I can combine it. I grew up in Dubai and spend much of my free time saving to/travelling abroad.
