Fact File

Job Title: Veterinary Surgeon   Joined Riverside in:  2022
Pets: 1 Cat
Animal she would be: Penguin

For me, being a vet is never boring, there are new challenges each day. I love animals, learning and problem solving and. as a vet I get to do these things every day. Riverside has an ethos that allows me to offer and provide the best care for pets and thier families. Since Joining in 202 I have enjoyed being part of the fantastic team who work collaboratively to treat each pet as we would our own.

After an initial stint in mixed practice in my early career, I have worked in a variety of first and second opinion small animal practices working with cats, dogs, and other small pets. I have a Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice with a special interest in internal medicine. I also have an Association of British Acupuncturists qualification and have previously worked in a rehabilitation and pain clinic.

I would like to do another Certificate, the learning enriches my patient care and helps me to enjoy my job more. At the end of the day I get great satisfaction from successful case management, helping animals get better and preventing suffering. I can then go home happy to enjoy my spare time horse-riding, walking and enjoying community activities such as leading my church youth group. I also have to care for my own animals, of course, which currently include my own cats and a pony as well as an ever changing myriad of cats protection foster kittens.
