I graduated from Massey University, New Zealand in 1996. then then worked in mixed practice for five years in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. I moved to the UK in 2001, and have been at Pennard Vets since 2003, initially working as the out-of-hours emergency vet before joining the day staff in 2006.

I am trained in acupuncture therapy and am offering treatments to dogs and cats at Pennards.

About me:

I credit All Creatures Great and Small as my inspiration for becoming a vet.

Family pets:

I have three cats, all waifs and strays, that arrived as kittens and haven’t found homes – not including the practice cat Freddie. They all get on remarkably well!

Hairy Maclary.

I would most like to meet:

Brian Cox.

Interesting fact about me:

I can salsa dance!
