Job Title: Student Nurse
Joined Riverside in: 2022
Pets: Horses, Chickens, cats, Dog
Animal she would be: Snake

I came to Riverside on a placement from College in April 2022. The team made me feel really welcome and I was really pleased when I was offered the chance to stay on as a full time employee once my placement is finished. My main ambition at the moment is to qualify as an RVN. I love animals, and seeing them get better when they are unwell is amazing. There is something different every day and I can’t wait to see how far my career can progress.

I was working in a hunt kennel and livery yard before starting my nursing course. I completed a Foundation Degree in Equine Science, and I have competed in both showjumping and eventing on my own pony, Gem.

In my spare time I enjoy reading and spending time with my dog and horses. I grew up on a farm so being around animals has always been part of my life. I also love art and I combined this with my passion for animals in my own art business creating pet portraits.
