I initially completed a degree in Zoology at Swansea University before undertaking a degree in veterinary medicine at The University of Edinburgh. I moved back to Wales and joined Vets4Pets in 2016.

I enjoy all aspects of clinical practice but am especially interested in medicine cases, especially feline.

My spare time is ruled by four cats – Angus, Enid, Bella and Bernard. When they allow I enjoy reading, gaming and running.

I joined Vets4Pets after graduating from the University of Nottingham. I have known I wanted to be a vet from a very young age and have had animals of my own throughout my life.

I have a particular interest in surgery, but thoroughly enjoy all aspects of my job as a vet. I am keen to develop my skills further and have ambitions to pursue further qualifications soon.

I have a Lhasa Apso at home called Alfie. Outside of work I enjoy taking him for walks, watching the formula 1, and when I get the chance, riding horses.

I’ve always been a massive animal lover and have known from a young age I wanted to work with animals. I have always been surrounded by a variety of animals growing up.

I started my nursing career in 2009 and qualified as a registered veterinary nurse (RVN) in 2013. I enjoy every aspect of my job especially the wide variety of patients and cases presented each day. I love nursing sick patients back to health and providing owners with advice about keeping their pet in tip top condition.

I have a particular interest in our feline patients and gained a certificate in feline friendly nursing in 2019. I am also interested in caring for neonates and have hand-reared a number of litters of kittens, puppies and even a litter of mice.

I currently own two handsome male cats named Chester and Colin the Creature and a beautiful Irish setter dog named Scarlett.

I love working for Vets 4 Pets Cardiff Newport Road, everyone working here is a true animal lover and has every patients’ best interest at heart.
