About Me
I graduated with a BSc (Hons) Veterinary Nursing Science in 2008 at Sparsholt College, qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2007 (NVQ 3) and am a registered Veterinary Nurse with the RCVS. I also hold a City and Guild Certificate in the nursing of exotic species, gained in 2009 from Edinburgh’s Telford College.

I am a qualified clinical coach supporting student veterinary nurses in practice. My interests include practical nursing skills including Schedule 3 procedures and surgical nursing, the nursing of exotic species and emergency and critical care.

I’m currently undertaking an MSc with University of Edinburgh, and have strong links with industry, have been working in veterinary practice in some form for 12 years and am a member of the BVNA.

I still maintain my links with the veterinary profession by attending Veterinary Congress and work as a locum for out of hours emergency services. Recently I visited South Africa as part of a conservation study tour, and Mongolia, where we rode horses across the Gobi steppes.
