I qualified as a VN in early 2001 whilst working at a small animal practice in North-West London. Later that year I became both an assessor and internal verifier and in 2003 took on the role as head nurse at the practice.
I have a keen interest in feline internal medicine, veterinary oncology and domestic animal behaviour. In 2005 I gained the Improve International Nurses Certificate in Animal Behaviour and in 2007 the Improve International Nurses Certificate in Advanced Anaesthesia.
I worked as a nurse, assessor and internal verifier in practice until 2008 when I left to pursue a career in the education sector, gaining my Diploma in Teaching (DTLLS).
In 2014 I completed the top-up BSc in Veterinary Nursing, gaining first class honours.
Whilst lecturing in veterinary nursing at an FE college, I continued to locum in various practices and in 2015 returned full time to practice as a medicine and oncology nurse at the RVC Queen Mother Hospital for Animals. In 2016 I also took on the role of clinical educator at the QMHA.
