I started work in the City of London as a broker in 1984 before moving to Hong Kong in 1993 to establish the business in Asia. Since leaving the city in 2002 I have managed of a firm of solicitors before finally moving into the veterinary world in 2007. In 2016 I was elected to the board of the Veterinary Management Group (VMG) an organisation I am immensly proud to represent.

I have an aging lab/springer crossbreed and a Cat. I am keen on music, travel, golf, fly- fishing, horse racing and all countryside and conservation matters. I am a Supervising Steward for Glastonbury Festival running a team of 275 volunteers. I have also volunteered for disaster recovery programs in flood areas in the uk and Serbia.
