I graduated in 2008 from the University of Bristol with an honours degree in Veterinary Nursing and Practice Administration. I worked in a mixed practice in the Midlands for 2 years before returning to the University of Bristol as Senior ICU nurse for 4 years. I gained the VTS(ECC) qualification in 2012. In 2013 I moved to join the Royal Veterinary College ECC team where I took on the role of head nurse for four years. In 2020 I stepped back into the team to focus on a clinical role working within the emergency and critical care unit and supporting the students on clinical rotations at the hospital.
