I usually work from 0830 until 1700, Monday to Friday.
I graduated from the University of Glasgow School of Veterinary Medicine in 1998 with a Merit in Large Animal Studies.
My first job was in rural mixed practice with Smith and Stewart Veterinary Surgeons in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. In 2000, I moved to Australia to work in mainly equine practice at Derrimut Road Veterinary Centre, Melbourne. I returned to Scotland in 2002 and spent 11 years in equine practice at Clyde Vet Group, Lanark. Here I completed my Certificate in Equine Practice and ran the reproduction and anaesthesia services. I also developed my interest in geriatric medicine.
In January 2014 I moved to the Dick Vet Equine Practice at the R(D)SVS. My primary responsibilities involve first opinion clinical work and the teaching of final year students on the equine rotation. I also run the reproduction service. I am primarily ambulatory but spend a minority of time in the equine hospital. I lecture in Equine Reproduction to Year 4 students.
