Biography

Having wanted to be a veterinary surgeon for as long as I can remember and with a passion for horses, I was delighted to gain my veterinary degree in 2001 from the University of Bristol and joined an exclusively large animal practice as a locum for six months, with a plan to follow that with an equine practice job. Although for the most part I enjoyed my time there, there were three significant factors that changed my career path – one was the rare, but still very intimidating nightmare farmer,the second was the long periods of time spent driving, and the third was the realisation that I wanted to do surgery and though not impossible, in reality the journey to become a female equine surgeon was going to be challenging. I therefore took a subsequent job in small animal practice to compare the two experiences and felt that small animal work held many more opportunities for me in the longer term and found that I actually enjoyed it more than the equine work after all!

After 2 years in small animal practice I was hungry to specialise further and improve my depth of knowledge, hence I moved to the Royal Veterinary College to undertake a rotating internship and from there achieved a surgical residency position at the University of Bristol. Following my residency, I moved to Cambridge as a Staff Surgeon in 2009 and obtained my European Diploma in Small Animal Surgery in 2010, completing my path to specialisation.

Webinars are a really a great idea, especially in my case (mom of young children, so taking a few days to go to seminars is nearly impossible!), and I know I'm not the only one!
