I started as a student Veterinary Nurse in 1995, and progressed to Nurse and then Head Nurse in various practices in the South West. Looking for the next challenge I moved from Head Nurse to Practice Manger at a Hospital and Referral Centre where my boss encouraged me to study and then take the ‘Certificate in Veterinary Practice Management,which I was proud to achieve in 2013. I am now a member of the Certificate and Training Committee sitting on the other side of the table and promoting the CVPM!

In 2016 I joined Independent Vetcare as a Business Support Manager and now look after 12 practices in North Wales, Cheshire and Shropshire working with the Practice Mangers and Clinical Directors to develop their practices and teams.
