Introducing the Vet Team

Evan David BVSc BA MRCVS (director)


Mobile 07725 039 093

Evan David was born in San Francisco, California, and grew up there until 1986 when the family moved to Aberdaron in North Wales for a year’s sabbatical. It was during this time he started working on a neighbouring beef and sheep farm, and continued to do this every summer until graduating from Liverpool University Veterinary School in 2003. During his studies at Liverpool much of his work experience took place on large Dairy Farms in Northern California, which is sometimes shortened to NorCal by locals. This was invaluable experience in modern, large scale dairy farming.

After graduating as a Vet from Liverpool, Evan’s first job was a farm vet in Somerset which he held for 2 years until he and his wife Clare decided to move back closer to family in Marlow. Evan then worked as a farm vet for Hall Place Vets in Marlow who were then bought out by Larkmead Veterinary Group shortly afterwards, hence his move there. Evan’s progressive, friendly, common sense, hands-on approach to veterinary work, won a lot of respect from the farming community in the area.

In 2010, Evan took an offer from H&C Pearce to open a large animal practice on their site. Evan founded NorCal Veterinary Services in November 2010 to provide farmers in the area with a high quality relationship-based veterinary service.

He is husband to Clare, and a Father to three. Outside interests were football, water-skiing, surfing.





Jono Cooper BVM BVS BVMedSci MRCVS 

Mobile: 07711 923 909

Jono graduated from Nottingham University in July 2011, and took up his first post with Evan 3 days later, having spent many weeks seeing pracitce with him as a student. Son of a Dairy farmer, and Berkshire born and bred, he was fortunate to already know the area well. After 2 years at NorCal, curiosity got the better of him and he moved to Yorkshire to further his knowledge of Poultry medicine and experience cattle farming in a TB4! During his time in the North, Jono worked at a large cattle practice, alongside being the principle on site vet for a large progressive beef enterprise. Jono regards this time as some of the most valuable in his career, and believes it has given him an tremendous insight into the practical application of his veterinary knowledge. In 2017 Jono was ready for his next challenge, and could hear home calling. He moved back to Berkshire support his father who now has a herd of Beef Shorthorns, and opened the NorCal Wantage branch. 

Jono has a passion for improving animal health and business productivity through well managed animal husbandry. He aims to work with clients on a personal level to maximise profit and output through their system by truly understanding its foundations. 


Charlotte Plummer BVSc MRCVS

Mobile: 07889 701 340

Charlotte graduated from Bristol University in the summer of 2016 before joining Norcal as her first job. Originally from a dairy farm in Wiltshire she has always liked cows! She enjoys all aspects of farm animal work and is looking forward to getting stuck in with all species.

Mobile 07860 920 479

Jo graduated in 2013 from the University of Liverpool and previous to this completed a degree in Animal Science at the University of Nottingham.  She joined Norcal in October 2014 after working in mixed practice in the Cotswolds. Jo is a local girl, having grown up around Waddesdon, she knows the area well. Much to many clients disappointments Jo now works for us on a part-time basis allowing her more time to support the farm at home.  Outside work, when she is not farming, Jo keeps fit by going to bootcamp sessions and training for half marathons. She also enjoys catching up with friends over a good cup of tea, a biscuit or a large glass of wine after a hard day at work.
