I graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2010 after completing a Bachelors of Veterinary Science and Masters in Veterinary Parasitology. After graduating I moved to the east Cheshire/Manchester area where I worked in small animal practice for 2 years, then set up a Limited company to provide professional locum services for around 3 years. I joined Vets4Pets Cheadle in February 2015, but have been working with the team when Abigail had some much needed time off since mid 2013. Due to this, I had gotten close to the team and familiar with the clients, and this ultimately influenced my decision to move back for a full time position here.
I enjoy all aspects of the job, and have spent time in Grenada, West Indies and Lexington, Kentucky, improving my surgical skills and clinical experience, to progress the continual learning needed in this job. I particularly enjoy internal medicine, especially cardiology and am currently enrolled on the RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (CertAVP) in Cardiology, but also diagnostic imaging. Putting all the pieces to a clinical problem together to get a patient fit and well again is a very rewarding experience.
Out of work I enjoy meeting up with friends and spending time with my other half. I'm a bit of a history geek, a fan of the great outdoors and also go travelling as often as I can. We currently have a little hamster called smoke, who acts more like a dog, but we hope to be getting two lab retriever dogs very soon to add to the family. Cheadle Vets4Pets has always been a very fun work environment and hopefully clients can pick up one our happy team ethos, though it can be a very stressful job. Communication is of utmost importance to myself so every client understands and is happy with every visit whether it be a booster vaccination or seeing one of their pets back to good health.
