I started my career in mixed practice in Surrey, where I gained my qualification as a veterinary nurse and then moved to Suffolk to qualify as an equine veterinary nurse. I achieved my diploma in advanced veterinary nursing (equine) and a Bachelor of Science degree with honours in clinical veterinary nursing (equine). Being an RVN and REVN allows flexibility and exposure to all areas of the veterinary world which keeps my enthusiasm for my job current and ongoing.

During my time in practice I became a clinical coach and assisted several student veterinary nurses through the journey of becoming a veterinary nurse. I have had the privilege to lecture at BVNA congress, BEVA congress as well as producing online webinars and having articles published in the veterinary times and co-writing a chapter in the BSAVA textbook of veterinary nursing.

I am passionate about the veterinary nurse professional and being involved in the future and development of this would be an amazing honour and experience. As professionals we need to ensure we are always forward thinking with regards to nursing our patients and utilising the skills we have to do so. Representing the veterinary nursing profession and promoting the ideals of BVNA would be an amazing learning and broadening experience. I hope to aid in the development of the veterinary nursing profession by utilising my knowledge and own experiences, to ensure the continued improvement and high quality of care is continued.
