Job Title: Vet / Director
Joined Riverside in: 1997
Pets: 1 dog, 1 cat
Animal she would be: Beaver

I graduated as a vet in 1995 from the Royal Veterinary College in London. I moved to South Wales in 1997, and soon found myself at home in the hills of this beautiful area.

As a vet I really enjoy the variety of being a GP, and for me the great pleasure of this job is providing a great service to the animals and owners alike. I get a lot of satisfaction from building up relationships with my patients over the years.

I became a partner at Riverside over 17 years ago and have been sole owner since 2015. It's been a huge learning curve and very callenging taking on all the aspects of running the business, but I feel very proud of our culture of caring for each other and the animals who come to us.

Out of work I'm pretty active. I enjoy keeping fit and can spend hours walking miles over the Brecon Beacons with my dog Skerry. I grow vegetables in my garden and enjoy cooking what I've grown.

I relax by having a pint in my local with my husband and friends. My husband and I regularly eat out and have travelled all over the country seeking out exciting places to try interesting food.
