Kim grew up in Corfe Mullen and qualified in 2008 after training at Lynwood Veterinary Group in Wimborne.   She then worked at Southern Counties Veterinary Specialists acquiring experience in referral work before leaving to work in a dedicated out-of-hours centre in Poole dealing with night-time and weekend emergencies where she worked towards gaining a certificate in Emergency and Critical Care.

Kim joined Natterjacks in November 2013 after missing general practice work and a desire to return to the land-of-the-living after a lengthy spell of working night shifts! Kim and her husband Steve share their home in Merley with a rescued Springer Spaniel called Merlin (who comes to work with Kim) and two cats – a mischievous young tearaway called Mo and Bill, a grumpy old man who became the practice cat after appearing at the out-of-hours centre and subsequently wormed his way into Kim’s affections!  When not at work Kim enjoys running and going camping.
