I am originally from Yorkshire and moved to New Zealand when I was 12 years old. Over there I spent a lot of time volunteering at a horse trekking centre and immersing myself in the outdoor lifestyle. I have always had a love for animals and throughout my childhood I had cats, rabbits, Guinea pigs, hamsters, rats and have always had a keen interest in horses and livestock.
Once I returned to the UK and finished school, I studied at an agricultural college and in 2013 I got married and my husband and I moved to Germany for three years. Here we got our two dogs Alfie and Rex, both of whom are English Springer Spaniels.
In my free time, I love taking them out for long walks, training them and going out on our local shoot. Since moving to Salisbury I have volunteered at the local Dogs Trust, which has further encouraged me to pursue a career with animals.
I initially started working at Vets4Pets Amesbury doing weekend voluntary work to learn more about the veterinary nursing side of things. I continue to do this alongside my receptionist position to further my knowledge within the practice and the profession.
This is my first time being a receptionist in the veterinary industry so I am excited about being part of the Vets4Pets team and really looking forward to meeting you and all your pets.
