After graduating from Edinburgh in 1998, I spent four years in mixed practice in England and Scotland, followed by fourteen years at the PDSA in Dundee. In 2016, I returned to general small animal practice, including a short stint in Emergency and Critical Care. Since 2019, I have been working as a locum veterinary surgeon in practices across Scotland.
Aside from cats, dogs and rabbits, I have treated everything from cattle, racehorses, seals and wallabies to owls, monkeys, snakes, chameleons and sugar gliders. My main professional interests are surgery (especially complex cases), pain management and exotics.

Outside of work, I enjoy trail running, bird watching, cycling and Lego. I live in the Scottish Highlands with my family and a Patterdale Terrier.
