I qualified from The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in 2010 and worked in mixed practice before returning to the R(D)SVS for a small animal internship. After this I undertook an anaesthesia internship before working as a small animal anaesthesia clinician. After leaving to work as a locum veterinary surgeon, I then returned in 2014 as a Clinical Skills Teaching Fellow with the Veterinary Medical Education Division. 

My main interests are in using technology in teaching, teaching clinical skills, as well as anaesthesia and analgesia. I have developed novel clinical skills classes as well as developing the final year objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs).
