I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2005 and joined Shinfield vets in 2011. I have enjoyed an exciting career including 2 years spent as a local dog warden helping to collect and rehome local stray dogs. I have always been passionate about animal welfare and I have raised large amounts of money over the years for various animal charities through sponsored runs, hikes and parachute jumps. I enjoy all aspects of nursing but I have a particular interest in feline medicine and in 2017, I completed a Diploma in feline nursing. In my spare time I enjoy keeping fit through a variety of group fitness classes and running. I have a passion for travelling and have been fortunate enough to visit many amazing places including Thailand, Malaysia, Dubai, Peru and Colombia to name just a few. I am a certified open water diver and a keen skier and snowboarder. I currently live in Thatcham with my partner and my rescue cat Mac.
