BSc (Hons) BVSc (Hons) MRCVS

Biography - I qualified from the University of Bristol in 2010 and since then have worked in companion animal practice (plus a maternity cover as business development manager for a busy veterinary referral hospital). I returned to my native North East a few years ago with my Southerner vet husband, who is still adapting to the weather and the accent. I particularly enjoy consulting and getting to know clients and their pets. My main clinical interest is dentistry, and I also enjoy medicine and diagnostic imaging. I've recently started working towards a PhD in antibiotic resistance. My time outside of work is taken up by my two toddlers and two rescue Chihuahuas, although I'm not sure which are noisiest.
