I joined the practice in 1976 as a new graduate of the Royal Dick Vet School in Edinburgh. I am now almost exclusively involved in our companion animal division. I enjoy most elements of practice but have been particularly involved in surgical cases for many years. As part of our commitment to further studies I undertook a 2 year course from the European School of Postgraduate Studies in Small Animal Surgery. Current updates have included medical and surgical treatment of ear problems, dental surgery and gastric torsions. Away from work I enjoy walking, gardening and photography. I keep a range of pets -a cat, ancient tortoises, budgies and canaries.
I joined the practice in 1989. I studied under the European School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies and gained the General Practitioner Certificate in Small Animal Medicine in September 2006. My special interests are in Internal Medicine, Endoscopy, Diagnostic Imaging, Dermatology and Emergency Medicine.
I started working at the practice in 1990. I am involved in all aspects of the practice with a particular interest in equine work. I studied under the European School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies and gained the General Practitioner Certificate in Equine Practice in September 2004. My special interests are in Equine Endoscopy, Dentistry, Lameness, Internal Medicine, and Reproduction.
I have been with the practice since graduating from The Royal Dick Vet School in Edinburgh in 1997. Whilst busy in all aspects of the practice I have a particular interest and considerable expertise in equine work. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and my Springer Spaniel.
I am originally from Leeds and came to the practice in 1997 for work experience. I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College, London in July 2006 and started working here as a new graduate in all aspects of mixed animals. In May 2009, I decided to specialize in small animal medicine and surgery and I now hold the General Practitioner Certificate in Small Animal Surgery.
In my spare time, I enjoy dog walking, horse riding and generally keeping fit.
I am now back from Maternity Leave having given birth to my daughter Ophelia in March 2014.
I joined the practice in January 2014. After graduating from the University of Glasgow Veterinary School in 2011 I worked for two and a half years in a mixed practice in the Orkney Islands. I enjoy all aspects of mixed practice as it makes every day different, but having ridden horses growing up that interest has continued into my working life.
In my time away from work, I enjoy exploring the countryside with my Jack Russell Milo and participating in many sports including football, squash and cycling.
I joined the practice in September 2015 after graduating from the Royal Dick Veterinary College in Edinburgh in June this year. I am very much enjoying the variety of patients and experiences Parkhill has to offer. I am particularly interested in small animal medicine and surgery.
In my free time I love to be in the great outdoors with my little dog Alfie, and if there are any adventure sport activities available I’m the first to give it a go.
I graduated from the University of Liverpool Veterinary School, and started working at the practice in July 2014. I enjoy all the challenges and variety a mixed practice has to offer. Originally from Leeds, I am pleased to come back and work in Yorkshire.
Outside of work I like walking, exploring the outdoors and keeping fit. On rainy days I prefer to be inside with a good book or doing some knitting.
