I did all my nurse training here and qualified in 2003 - picking up a National Award for highest marks in the country for my first year exams. I am now the Head Nurse and enjoy all aspects of the job - especially clinics. I like to be able to pass on information that helps clients keep their pets healthy and hopefully prevents health problems at a later date. I am especially interested in our feline patients and developing a cat 'even friendlier' practice. We are members of the Feline Advisory Bureau and are working towards an ISFM Cat Friendly Clinic Accreditation.
In my spare time I enjoy walking, travelling, gardening, quilting, researching my family tree, and caring for my menagerie of rescue animals - of tortoises, birds, and cat Benny
I joined the practice in 2009. I enjoy all aspects of veterinary nursing, particularly our feline patients.
In my spare time, I enjoy going to the theater, getting out on my motorbike and exploring the countryside.
I joined Parkhill Vets in 2014, when I graduated with my veterinary nursing degree from Askham Bryan College.
I very much enjoy the entire field of nursing, particularly supporting and looking after our hospitalised patients. I also have a keen interest in weight clinics as it is always rewarding when they reach their target.
When I am not at work I spend my time with my Swiss Shepherd Calli. We live life to the full and enjoy cooking, travelling and photography.
I joined the team at Parkhill as a registered veterinary nurse in 2015. I particularly enjoy the nursing of intensive hospitalised patients.
Outside of work I love kayaking, rock climbing, walking my dog Hector and generally being outdoors.
I have a menagerie of exotic pets in addition to my cat Evie and dog Hector. These include rabbits, snakes, crested geckos, bearded dragons and a chameleon.
I enjoy all aspects of my job but especially being involved in surgical procedures and caring for hospitalised inpatients. I also like the challenge of nursing wildlife.
I enjoy educating and sharing advice with new pet owners to help them build a healthy relationship with their pets. As well as being a qualified nurse I also have an HND in Animal Management and a BSc(hons) degree in Countryside Management.
At home the animal care theme continues with my dog (pictured right), 2 cats, mice, guinea pigs, chickens and a logpile of minibeasts in the garden. Along with 3 young children we have a busy and noisy time! As a family we enjoy long country walks and trips to the beach come rain or shine. I have a keen interest in cricket and football - watching matches or playing with my children.
I am a second year student at Askham Bryan College in York studying the Diploma in Veterinary Nursing and enjoy every aspect of the course.
In my spare time I love to bake and walk my dog Barney who is a Welsh Springer Spaniel.
