After completing my Level 6 diploma in veterinary nursing, I worked at a busy practice as a companion animal nurse. In doing this I gained a range of knowledge in all areas of veterinary nursing. 

I am passionate about ensuring animals are cared for properly. I am also passionate about ensuring that animals have nurses who are highly trained caring for them while they’re in the veterinary clinic.   

My hobbies include walking my dogs, reading and spending time with my family.
