BA(Hons) RVN VTS (Cardiology) PG Cert (Vet Ed) FHEA
Registered Veterinary Nurse
I am the head nurse here at St Neots. I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2003 and worked at the Royal Veterinary College for 10 years. After a stint teaching veterinary nurses, I am really enjoying working in practice again, working with pets and clients first hand, hopefully helping to make a difference.
In 2010, I passed specialist cardiology exams in America, and often speak at conferences on nursing of patients with heart disease and heart failure. I am also on the editorial board of a veterinary nursing journal.
My other passion in veterinary medicine (and life!) is cats. Working with an angry or scared cat is one of my favourite things, as it can be so rewarding to win their confidence, and hear a faint purr. At home, I have Arthur, a rescue cat who came with a lot of issues, but these days lives for food and fuss.
