Hello, my name is Sarah I am an RVN at a small animal practice in Downham market, Norfolk. 

I have always known that I wanted to work in the veterinary profession and my dreams came true when I was offered a place as a trainee vet nurse at a local practice.  I completed the animal nursing assistant certificate and then the level 3 diploma in veterinary nursing and six years later I am now qualified and registered. 

I enjoy all aspects of the Veterinary Nurse job and have a real passion for surgery and diagnostic imaging. I am also developing my coaching skills by being involved with the training of two trainee nurse students which I really enjoy. In the future I would like to complete the advanced diploma in vet nursing. 

In my spare time I love being outdoors spending time riding my horses, and walking especially in Yorkshire. 

I joined the BVNA as a Student member four years ago, I found all the resources on the members area and the Vet Nurse Journal an invaluable source of information that improved my knowledge and supported me through training. I was intrigued to know what congress was about so I attend for my first time in 2015 and loved it! It's now a regular date in my diary. 

I look forward to holding regular, relevant & affordable CPDs in the Norfolk region, if anyone has any ideas or suggestions please feel free to contact me.
