United KingdomA small animal veterinary hospital in Brighton, UK
Studying at Cornell University summer school, volunteering with streetvet to provide veterinary care for the homeless, nurturing my special interests in emergency and critical care medicine and client communications.
I graduated from The University of Liverpool UK in 2007 with degrees in Veterinary Science and in Conservation Medicine.
On graduating, I took on a job in a truly mixed practice that served the local farm community, a small zoo and exotic pets, alongside dogs and cats. I developed a strong interest in small animal emergency and critical care medicine. So I moved to a role as a night vet at a busy small animal veterinary hospital, where I completed a further qualification in emergency and critical care medicine and surgery. I also worked as a locum at various small animal practices. Nowadays, I have moved to a day role at the same hospital treating the sickest patients whilst they are in the hospital wards. Outside the clinic, I enjoy writing for vets and the general public and leading a local team for the charity StreetVet.
Away from work, I enjoy running and walking my elderly German Shorthair Pointer, 'Teddy' - who used to be my running companion in his younger years. In the last few years I have taken up sea swimming, but only in the summer months! I love being outdoors but also enjoy music, the arts and visiting European cities.
