I have lived in Dorset since birth and have loved living in Southbourne near the beach. Especially in the summer nothing better than a dog walk in the sun! I enjoy going for long dog walks in the forest, picnics in the summer, exploring new places! I especially love going to Thorpe park, as I am very much a thrill seeker at heart and we have to go every year for fright night at Halloween! When not out with the dogs adventuring the forest or screaming on rollercoasters, I very much enjoy family time chilling with my 3 sisters and all my nieces and nephews as well as spending time with my partner chilling out on long walks or drives.

I first found my obsession for animals when studying my animal management diploma at kingston maurward. Where I found my passion in animal care but cleaning out animals just wasn’t enough and I wanted more, which is when I started my veterinary care assistant diploma at PDSA completing this has now opened my mind to a wider knowledge of the veterinary industry. I can say I love working in a veterinary practice helping owners with their animals and seeing there happy smiles when their pet is fully recovered, it’s just such a nice feeling. Also being a shoulder to cry on in the not so happy situations and being there for owners. I also love being out the back hands on handling animals and helping those that need it, I can honestly say this is the career path I was meant to take, natterjacks is an awesome team!!
