I have been a veterinary surgeon for the last 1 years working all over the world. I have been privileged to live and work with some great people in Essex for the last 8 years practising veterinary medicine. My passion for excellent delivery of animal care and high quality customer centered service has been the main drive throughout my career. My special interests are all aspects of internal medicine and cardiology; I am currently studying for a certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice. When I am not working, I enjoy reading, jogging, playing football with my three boys and actively policing our exotic fishes from being overfed by the boys!
