Veterinary Care Assistant
I have always taken a keen interest in animals, owning small furries and horse riding from a young age. I completed a BTEC National Diploma in Animal Care from Oakland College achieving the highest grade possible.
I have many years experience in the animal care industry with a number of jobs ranging from a sales person in pet shops to a groom in a riding school. My main experience comes from working for the RSPCA for over 9 years and also owning my own pet care business which included home animal boarding and dog walking.
I have 2 rescue dogs, Maggie and Peggy, who I fostered from the RSPCA and ended up staying. They both have health issues, mainly Peggy as she is missing a leg, however this does not slow her down at all and she will always beat Maggie in a race for the ball. I've also owned my horse, Fred, for 11 years. Despite Fred being 26 years old, he is still ridden regularly and takes part in local competitions.
