I was brought up on a sheep and beef farm in Lanarkshire. I qualified from Edinburgh in 2011, and have worked in mixed practice in Cumbria ever since. I completed my RCVS Cert AVP (sheep) in 2016. I live on a Lake District fell farm with my partner, a flock of Herdwick sheep, Limousin cows and various dogs. In my very occasional spare time I try to ride my horse.
