    Having worked trained and qualified in an exotic practice Taylor & Marshall in Shropshire, I developed an interest in all animals less ordinary.
    From this point forwards my career has followed and exotic pathway, including companion, wildlife and zoo animals.
    I’ve been lucky enough to work in some excellent institutions including Manor Vets Exotic Referrals where I gained my C&G certificate in Exotic Vet Nursing and currently Great Western Referrals (Vets Now) which has given me great experiences with a wide and varied range of exotic species including birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, small mammals, large mammals, invertebrates.
    I am still fascinated by the weird and wonderful animals we see in practice, and my passion for such extends outside of work. At home, as well as 3 cats, I have 2 chinchillas, 3 ribbed newts, a carpet python and tarantulas.
    Recently I have been spending time overseas exploring and working with wildlife and game in various projects and hope to continue to do so going into the future.
