I graduated in 2015 from Nottingham Vet School and joined the partnership of Ilkeston Vets4Pets in 2018. Although I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine my main professional interests include soft tissue surgery, dentistry, ultrasound imaging and working up medicine cases. I currently share my home with two rescue cats called Summer and Luna who keep me busy!

Favourite animal and why?

Sorry can't really decide, love them all but if my life depended on it, probably cats.

What pets do you have and what are their names?

2 cats, Billie Whizz and Stompy (who was born blind) and 2 horses, Sam and Barmy Barnie.

What is the best pet's name you have ever come across?

A snake called "For Goodness".

What is your favourite famous animal?

On TV, the talking horse Mr. Ed (showing my age there), in real life, the showjumper Ftot du Chateau.

What is the best thing about working for Vets4Pets?

Being given support from a friendly large organisation but also given the freedom to do what we feel is best for the client and their pet.

I graduated from the University of Nottingham in July 2021 having studied there for 5 years. Vets for Pets Ilkeston is my first job as a newly graduated Veterinary Surgeon - I initially came to the practice on placement while studying and really enjoyed working as part of the amazing team - so much so I decided to stick around!


I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my first few months out in practice and have gained invaluable medical and surgical experience during that time. I especially enjoy helping all the lovely pets that come through our doors and making sure they have a positive experience during their time with us. 


In my spare time, I love watching football and relaxing in front of the TV. Whenever I get the time, I try and make it back home to Manchester, where I am from originally, to see my two beautiful dogs Alfie and Ava.

I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2022 and took a year to study a conservation degree at the University of Liverpool in between my veterinary degree where my research included work with rodents and Asiatic Lions. I have come back to the area to work after graduation as I grew up locally. I have previously worked in charity practice before coming to Ilkeston and continue to enjoy treating our domestic companions! In my spare time I foster cats for the RSPCA who keep me on my toes!"

I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2014 and enjoy all aspects of nursing having gained experience working in both 1st opinion, emergency and referral practice.

In 2017 I followed my passion and qualified as an accredited veterinary physiotherapist which allows me to pursue my interest in animal rehabilitation and biometrics alongside my nursing.

Out of work I enjoy looking after and competing my horse Biscuit, and spending time with Mr D my working spaniel who was a rescue dog. As a family we have a small holding which means there is always something to do and no two days are ever the same.
