I started at Fairfield Veterinary Centre doing work experience when I was 18 years old. I have always been interested in Veterinary work completing a number of years work experience at another local Veterinary Practice. During this time I studied Animal Care based courses at Brooksby Melton College and worked for the Pet Blood Bank, gaining experience within the animal sector. Animals have always been a big part of my life from a very small age. Next I went on to do a 4 year degree course in BSc (HONS) Veterinary Nursing with Business Management and qualifying in 2012 as a Registered Veterinary Nurse.
I have a variety of animals including my two dogs Toby and Rosie. Toby is my Golden Retriever who was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer in 2010 and a heart condition in 2016 but with the care of Fairfield he doesn’t let this phase him. Also Rosie my Sprocker Spaniel who I delivered in 2013 with her litter mates, this was one of the most wonderful experiences. She passed her assessment to be a Pat dog in 2015. Another new addition to our family is my brothers Gordon Setter, he is full of life and character! I also have other animals including guinea pigs, a hamster, rabbits, degu’s, ducks, tortoise etc.
In 2015 I continued my career, gaining my Clinical Coach qualification which allows me to help Student Veterinary Nurses attain their nursing qualifications. Since then I have started a Certificate in Emergency and Critical Care Qualification which will expand and develop existing nursing skills and knowledge.
My particular interests are nursing small exotic mammals, emergency, oncology and blood work.Back to our staff
