My name is Becky and I have been qualified as a RVN since 2008.  As well as being a RVN, I am also qualified as a Small Animal Physiotherapist and Hydrotherapist.

Since qualifying I have worked in a variety of practices and tried various different roles but found that I am best suited to routine small animal work.

I previously held a role as a BVNA Regional Representative for the Midlands region, so some of you may recognise me a little.

My passion within veterinary nursing very much rests with the training of students and I am proud to have seen many student nurses qualify with my help over the years. As such I currently hold a clinical coach position and am keen to support student training ideas if I obtain a place on BVNA council.

I have been a BVNA member since before I started training and always actively support the association as much as possible.

Small animal nutrition is another area where I spend most of my time. I currently run weight and nutrition guidance clinics within the practice I work at which I absolutely love and have completed the Royal Canin PHC course in the last year.

2 years ago, after a small accident, I thought my career was over after a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, but after learning to walk and cope with the pain I developed a whole new outlook on my career and take every opportunity I am given with both hands and my whole heart, along with a supportive husband and a wonderful work family.

Now I feel it is time to give something back to the Veterinary Nursing community by becoming a BVNA council member and helping move Veterinary Nurses forward to have a strong voice within the veterinary world.
