I grew up in the Tuebrook and West Derby areas of Liverpool and have been working in veterinary practices in Liverpool from the age of 16. I graduated from the University of Liverpool Vet School in 2012 after doing a lot of my veterinary placements at Liverpool Vets4Pets and started working there straight away! My main interests are orthopaedics, soft tissue surgery and pain management. I am currently working towards a certificate in small animal surgery. I am keen to teach pet owners about preventative medicine and the general healthcare of their pets. It's great to be able to offer a wide range of orthopaedic and dermatological procedures here in Walton Vale Vets4Pets. I have a cat called Andrew and a dog called Minnie, both of which I re-homed from local rescues. You may see or hear Minnie around the practice!

I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2005 and enjoy all aspects of nursing, but in particular theatre and radiography.

I have a soft spot for sight hounds and geriatric dogs! I currently don't have any furry pets of my own at home but I do have some fish and shrimp that I'm trying to teach to sit and roll over - so far unsuccessfully!

I originally started volunteering at Liverpool Old Swan Vets4Pets before moving to Companion Care Prescot and attending Myerscough to complete my Degree in Veterinary Nursing. Since qualifying I have working in at Northwest Veterinary Specialist where I found my passion for in patient care and working closely with animals to provide the best care and love whilst they were in with us. Following this I moved into providing Out Of Hours care working nights. I loved the emergency side of veterinary nursing and gained a lot of experience whilst there. I recently had my little boy Frankie and got to spend a whole year out of work with him and my beagle Hugo! I have now came to Walton Vale Vets4Pets to work some with familiar faces, a new lovely supporting team and still get to have a life outside of work.
