I joined Shinfield Vets in April 2016 having worked as a qualified nurse for many years. I have always wanted to work with animals from a young age and began my training at MYF College in 2003 and qualified in 2006. Prior to becoming a veterinary nurse, I was an administrator for a media company in London for 3 years.
I enjoy all aspects of nursing such as monitoring anaesthetic, looking after inpatients or nurse clinics. However, I do have a particular interest in ‘Wound Management’ and passed this course last year. It has been great to apply the knowledge in practice. This year, I am planning to complete a course in diabetes and to further my knowledge in anaesthesia which is a crucial part in a nurse’s role.
I live with my husband in Hermitage, my 9 year old daughter, a rescue cat called Marmite and a mischievous hamster called Razar. Whilst not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the cinema and listening to 80’s music.
