BVetMed MRCVS

Claire grew up in Cheshire before moving to London to study at the Royal Veterinary College. On graduating in 2010, Claire spent time at a charity clinic in South Africa before returning to the UK to take up a position in a mixed practice in the Cotswolds. After enjoying over ten years seeing all manner of creatures great and small, Claire moved to a small animal practice in Gloucestershire and now splits her days between running a fully kitted out mobile consulting van and consulting or operating in the clinic. Claire lives with her husband, young daughter and rescue cat, Nigel, and in her spare time enjoys photography, baking and playing hockey.
