I graduated from Cambridge in 2004 and went up to the Lakes to work for mixed practice Frame, Swift and Partners.  I LOVED the job, but got fed up smelling of cows and was a bit lonely, so in 2007 started a small animal internship at Dick White Referrals where I started (and failed) the old style imaging certificate.  Referral practice wasn’t for me and I moved to Cromwell Veterinary Group as sole charge night vet working week on / week off for nearly 2 years.  I then worked a mix of days and nights before having my two girls, who are now 3 and 5.  I now work one late shift a week for Cromwells, as well as one day a week at Wood Green Animal Shelter (plus weekends).  My passion is diagnostics on a budget.  I’ve always been gifted at differentiating pinkish-blue blobs, so do a lot of in house cytology.  My failed cert attempt did provide me with the skills to perform competent ultrasound and radiology interpretation; useful for both ECC and shelter work, so I play to my strengths and have found my happy!

I created Vetsnet in 2016 in response to increasing awareness of the challenges faced by many involved in the veterinary industry.  I started looking into solutions and found there are a huge number of resources being developed at a rapid rate by a wide variety of individuals, organisations and businesses.  The primary aim of Vetsnet is to curate, summarise and signpost resources, in order to increase ease and efficiency of access to enable people to get the help they need.  Read more here
