Our Team

Dr Chris Reichmann TA MRCVS

Dr Chris Reichmann TA MRCVS


Chris was born and grew up in Munich. He qualified from Munich Vet School in 1996 and started to work in the UK soon after. He spent 7 years in a mixed practice in Rye before moving to Manchester for a short period. He then worked in Dover and Canterbury for a few years before joining up with Julie to open White Cliffs Veterinary Surgery in 2010.

He lives on his little smallholding outside Ashford, where he keeps sheep, pigs, bees and all kinds of birds. He shares the house with 6 cats (at the last count), some rescues, some home bred.

In his spare time Chris plays tennis or gardens and tries to build a new home at the same time as keeping the smallholding under control.

Dr Julie Culver BVETMED MANZCVS (Veterinary Behaviour) MRCVS

Dr Julie Culver BVETMED MANZCVS (Veterinary Behaviour) MRCVS


Julie graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2002 having taken a rather unorthodox route to becoming a vet!  She originally trained as a Jewellery Designer and spent her twenties in London working for some of the large diamond houses. She made the decision to become a Vet in 1995.

After graduating, Julie returned to Kent and currently lives in her home village of Eastry with her husband John and two dogs Dora and Lily (both Labradors).  She also has two rescued cats Lolly and Thomas as well as an ever increasing number of geese and chickens.

In December 2010 she opened White Cliffs Vets with Chris where they could offer the kind of veterinary medicine, care and service that they are both passionate about.

In 2014 Julie gained an award in Veterinary Behaviour with Sydney University to become a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists.
