I qualified from Edinburgh University in 2008, and then spent 2 years working in Central Queensland, Australia, where I had a wonderful tropical introduction to being a vet. After this I came back to the UK and in 2011 began working at a large veterinary practice in Newcastle,  I spent 4 years working in small animal practice.

I came to join the St Clair Veterinary Care team at the beginning of March 2015. I have two large ginger cats, Bert and Ernie, who are currently 5 years old. My interests include long distance running, as well as playing golf and football quite badly. I’ve adopted Newcastle United as my place to watch football, and will head to games whenever I can. I also take part in as many running events as my legs will cope with, mostly half marathons, but am building to a trail marathon in October 2016. When it comes to veterinary work, I enjoy canine and feline medicine, and have recently completed my certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (CertAVP) in August 2015. As well as medicine I also enjoy orthopaedics, investigating lameness and knee problems.
