"I have been immersed in veterinary medicine since the age of 12 when I started "seeing practice,"
spending every Saturday and most of my school holidays, with my local veterinary surgery. Early in   my veterinary degree at Glasgow, it became clear that I needed to be working in an animal welfare
role. Studying the behaviour of both animals and people has been hugely interesting and
rewarding. Making a real difference in the lives of both animals and their families is the very best
feeling in the world. I hope to continue achieving that in my varied roles as a clinician, academic,
lecturer and dedicated 'Pet Mum'."
