I am a newly qualified Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) currently working in a busy first opinion small animal, Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) accredited practice in West Sussex.
I enjoy my role working with Veterinary Surgeons and Veterinary Nurses’ to provide nursing care for day and in-patients. Some of my roles include; observation of patients, administration of medication, monitoring and administering anaesthetic for surgical patients, as well as providing post-operative care. I enjoy having the opportunity to liaise with owners within nursing clinics, on pet welfare and run puppy parties.
I have previously studied for the Foundation Degree Science (FDSC) in Equine Studies at Plumpton College and graduated with a distinction in June 2012.
I decided to progress onto the Bachelor Science (BSc) Equine Sports Performance at Plumpton College, which allowed me to study complementary therapy of which physiotherapy greatly interested me. I graduated in May 2014 with a 2:1.
Since September 2018, I have begun studying for the MSc Veterinary Physiotherapy course at Writtle University College. My aim is to provide physiotherapy to veterinary patients.
Alongside my day to day small animal experience, I have a vast experience of equine work experience working in professional establishments to include riding schools, polo yard and livery yards, alongside my previous studies. In addition I have taken the British Horse Society (BHS) stages up to Stage 2 care, and Riding and Road Safety course. I participate in weekly riding lessons as well as volunteer at a local horse rescue centre, and love to keep fit in my spare time.
