Education/Academic qualification

Bachelor of Veterinary Science, University of Bristol
Bachelor of Science, University of Bristol


I graduated from the Bristol University Veterinary School in 2010. I had also completed intercalated degree in Veterinary Pathogenesis in 2008.

I then worked in a busy first opinion small animal practice in East Yorkshire for 2 years, where I also started training nurses. My interest in medicine and teaching developed during these 2 years working with enthusiastic collaegues.

I enrolled in a small animal rotating internship at Nottingham University and finshed with a postgraduate certificate.

In July 2013 I started as a senior clinical training scholar in internal medicine here at the R(D)SVS. I have always had an interest in all aspects of internal medicine in both dogs and cats, but particularly enjoy endocrinology and haematology. During this residency I have maintained my interests, and have developed an interest in gastrointestinal disease and endoscopy.

I am greatful for the oppurtunity to work with and learn from the diplomates at Edinburgh veterinary school, as well as the research oppurtunities at the Roslin.
