Personal profile



Jess started her career at the University of Cambridge Veterinary School in 2007 as a Surgical Veterinary Nurse before moving on in 2012 to Dick White Referrals, a busy private practice near Cambridge to take up the position of Specialist Medicine Nurse where she developed a keen interest in assessing and improving inpatient welfare.

In 2015 Jess left the UK to work in Melbourne, Australia at the Lort Smith Animal Hospital, a large inner city charity hospital where she nursed companion animals as well as rehabilitating wounded wildlife brought in by the public. Following on from Australia, Jess lived and worked on the South Pacific island of Rarotonga and was a long term volunteer with The Esther Honey Foundation which supports the only veterinary clinic serving all fifteen Cook Islands.

Upon returning to the UK in 2017, Jess moved to Edinburgh to start working at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies as Welfare and Anaesthesia Nurse as part of the Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare Education Group. Along with assisting in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students at the University, Jess also teaches nursing and clinical skills to veterinary students in developing countries whilst promoting humane alternatives to live animals in veterinary education.

Alongside her work in the welfare field, Jess is part of the anaesthesia team and is responsible for training veterinary students and nurses in all aspects of anaesthesia, handling, inpatient care and pain management at the teaching hospital of the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies.
