Alice joined the Newmarket team in September 2018. After graduating from University College Dublin with a BSc Zoology (Hons), Alice worked abroad as a herpetologist, researching a plethora of wild reptile and amphibian species in Madagascar, Honduras and Mexico. However, in 2014 she changed career paths and went into the TV & film industry.
