I completed my veterinary nurse training in 2012. I have worked in various different practices from mixed animal, companion animal and a referral practice. I particularly enjoy looking after hospitalised patients and doing out of hours work.
Outside of work I enjoy gardening. I enjoy spending time with my three spaniels and two horses and looking after my aviary birds.
