After graduating from the Royal Veterinary College in 2013 I returned to my home town of Reading and joined the team at Shinfield Vets.
I have always enjoyed the company of animals and my two cats, Tiger and Koko, are certainly part of the family. Many owners have the same family bond with their pets, so I constantly aspire to improve the nursing care we provide, as I would expect nothing less for my own boys.
Since graduating I have completed numerous courses to improve my skills, most recently I gained a British Veterinary Nursing Association Certificate in Veterinary Nursing Wound Management and before this a rabbit awareness course supported by the RAWF association. I also have a particular interest in the public image and advancement of the nursing profession and have published research on the subject.
Outside of work I volunteer as an Assistant Scout leader in the local area, working hard to provide young people with opportunities and activities which they may not have otherwise. Most of all I look forward to time away with my family, we frequently escape the busy life of Reading to Swanage in Dorset, our much loved second home.
