We are the independent practice that focuses on the care you receive, not the number of patients we see.
You can look forward to a warm and friendly welcome when you visit our practice. Our team is made up of compassionate, self-confessed animal lovers, all of whom are dedicated to the care both you and your pet receive. We also have a spacious reception area, large consultation rooms – big enough for the whole family – and a fully-equipped surgical suite.
“They are amazing. Always made to feel welcome. I feel that my dogs health is the most important thing as it should be, all staff are so friendly and answer any questions I have”
Meet the team
Dr Ella Massy-Greene BVSc(hons) MRCVS
Owner and Veterinary Surgeon
I grew up in Australia surrounded by animals. As well as having cats and dogs as a child, my grandparents owned a farm breeding sheep, cattle and horses and I was an avid horse rider. I knew I wanted to be a vet from a very young age.
I graduated with honours from Sydney University in 1999, and arrived in the UK in 2001, planning to stay for 3 months. However, when I got here I loved practising in the UK due to the special relationship here between pets and their owners. After a short time locuming in multiple areas around the UK, I spent a number of years practising in Chelsea, London. After a great deal of planning and research, I opened Molly & Max in January 2010 and have watched the practice grow and become an integral part of the community. We have developed an amazing team that I am really proud to work with.
I love both dogs and cats and have developed special interests in general practice, anaesthesia, dentistry, preventative health care, nutrition and feline medicine.
I live in the local area with my husband, daughter and son and have a Bengal cat, Ueli, and Border Terrier, Max.
Dr Rebecca Flynn BVSc MRCVS
Having grown up on a farm in Zambia and been homeschooled until the age of 13 in a classroom filled with more creatures than children, becoming a vet was an obvious choice!
Rebecca attended boarding school in Norfolk, and later graduated from Bristol University in 2009. After graduating Rebecca returned to Zambia and worked as a locum for a short period of time, treating everything from zebras to tortoises. She then worked in both private veterinary practice and veterinary charities in the South of England, seeing a wide variety of species (snow leopards, aardvarks, kangaroos to name but a few!) as well as being involved in some severe welfare cases. Rebecca started at Molly and Max in June 2014 and has really enjoyed getting to know some of the many lovely animals in the Parsons Green area.
Rebecca enjoys all aspects of being a GP vet and is currently working towards a Certificate in Veterinary Medicine in order to achieve advanced practitioner status.
A keen competitive runner, Rebecca regularly runs half-marathons, in aid of various animal charities.
In her spare time, Rebecca loves painting (some of which are displayed in the practice), as well as gardening, yoga and anything fitness related!
Dr Clare Lambourne BVSc MRCVS
Sitting down every week to watch Animal Hospital as a child, Clare doesn’t remember thinking that she wanted to do anything else other than to be a vet. She’s been passionate about animals her whole life, both pets and wildlife.
Clare graduated from Bristol University in 2011 and started working at a mixed practice in Worcestershire as her first job, seeing cats and dogs, as well as cows, horses and alpacas. She then travelled for a year, including a two month stay in Botswana volunteering at an animal welfare charity where she neutered and vaccinated local dogs and cats, as well as treating donkeys, horses and cattle with various wounds and injuries and helping to educate the locals about animal welfare. She also worked as a locum vet in North Queensland, Australia, where she had the challenge of tending to dogs and cats with snake, spider and even crocodile bites as part of her day to day work.
Back in the UK Clare briefly worked as a locum in various practices around London, before settling at Molly and Max in July 2016. She is very much enjoying getting to know all of our clients and patients. Clare is interested in medicine, especially feline medicine, oncology (cancer diagnosis and treatment) and endocrinology (hormonal diseases). Outside of work, she enjoys travel, swimming, bird-watching and David Attenborough documentaries.
Dr Lara Baker BVetMed MRCVS
For Lara, being a vet has been a dream since she rememberers watching ‘Pet Rescue’ on TV at the age of 7 years old, and she finds being a vet incredibly rewarding.
Lara graduated from Royal Veterinary College in 2010. Since then Lara worked for a large and small animal practice in Hampshire for 2 years before moving back to my hometown of London and working as a small animal vet. She has a passion for small animal health and welfare and particular interests in medicine, surgery and neurology.
Lara is currently studying for an advanced practitioner certificate with the University of Liverpool as well as working part time with Molly and Max.
Lara has also recently travelled to Sri Lanka to help out with a dog rescue charity there. She has two dogs of her own that she adores, and spends most of her free time exploring with them on long walks. She also loves keeping fit, and if she is not with the dogs she is most likely at the gym or travelling. Lara is half Turkish and visits family there frequently.
Lara is very much looking forward to meeting you and your pets over the next few years.

Serena Terparia BSc (Hons) RVN
Registered Veterinary Nurse

Serena also has experience in working with wildlife and exotic species such as birds, squirrels, and tortoises.
Serena is particularly interested in clinical nursing and patient care and looks forward to meeting clients and patients in nurse clinics.

Henry initially joined Molly and Max as one of our full-time receptionists as Robyn’s protégée. Henry then discovered that he had been accepted back into university to study Engineering… we liked Henry so much, we kept him on to keep our reception under control on Saturdays whilst studying full time.
This young man hails from the North Norfolk coast where his past time nursing sick and injured wildlife back to health earned him notoriety with the RSPCA.
It was that same love of animals that eventually brought him to Molly & Max. Growing up, Henry always had cats and dogs. At the family home in Norfolk, he still has Snorlax – an old and slightly tubby cat with a very relaxed temperament as well as two Bischons; Polo and Coco.
Henry lives locally and you will often see him out running in local parks. In his spare time, Henry enjoys rock climbing and is working towards his private pilot’s licence.
Luke Steede RVN
Practice Manager and Registered Veterinary Nurse
Luke discovered his passion for veterinary nursing whilst on placement during his Diploma in Animal Management course back in 2006. After completing this diploma, he took up a student nurse position at his local veterinary practice in Surrey. In 2013 he joined the Register of Veterinary Nurses after being the first handful of nurses to pass the new Diploma in Veterinary Nursing qualification.
After qualifying Luke built on his nursing knowledge and skills and took the leap to work in a busy small animal practice in central London. Whilst there Luke also completed a Diploma in Animal Behaviour as well as a Certificate in Small Animal Nutrition, two areas Luke is greatly interested in. It was also at this practice Luke’s passion for management developed. Luke overlooked the daily running and the business aspects of this fast-paced, busy practice.
Luke grew up surrounded by animals so it was always going to land him in an animal-based career. Luke started his animal collection with hamsters, guinea pigs and rabbits as a child, and quickly the curiosity of the more unusual pets developed. At the age of 15, he bought his first parrot and the passion of parrot husbandry and behaviour took off. Luke now shares his home with a small dog, a parrot and a collection of endangered Lake Malawi Cichlid fish.
Luke joined Molly & Max Veterinary Practice in January 2018 as our new practice manager. Now settled into the role, he continues to build on practice management skills supported by a great team of veterinary professionals.
