Which pets have left paw prints on your heart?
Our family dog growing up, Mindy the staffy cross. One of my favourite memories of Mindy is her rolling around making little staffy grunts and catching fish down the river. Mindy found us where we rode horses. She was the fourth child of the family. She loved the beach and was very fond of our family cat.
Which area of your work do you find most interesting?
I find establishing great client and pet relationships to be very rewarding. I also have a special interest in both emergency and surgical fields.
How do you relax when you’re not at work?
Being outside taking the dogs to the beach, exploring new places and having brunch at new cafes.
Share something weird or wonderful about yourself.
I cannot handle the feel of dry cotton wool, it makes my skin crawl.
