I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College London in 2005. I've always worked with small animals (dogs/cats/rabbits/small furries) and have worked in every area of practice from traditional on-call, to running an emergency clinic, back to traditional practice before coming to York Vets4Pets.
I started working here as a locum, and liked it so much that when Helen asked if I wanted to stay permanently, saying 'yes' was an easy decision. I honestly enjoy every aspect of being a vet, but my favourite parts are emergency and critical care, soft tissue surgery, cardiology, and treating dental problems. I find it really satisfying taking a really sick pet and returning them home wagging (or purring or nose twitching!).
Outside of work I am mum to a lovely eight-year old daughter, and we also have a spaniel, two hamsters, two fish and about fifty water snails that just keep reproducing! In the little time I have left I really enjoy fitness and writing fiction.
