I trained at Abbey Vets in Durham and qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2000. I then worked as Head Nurse at Dog Vane Vets in Bishop Auckland until I joined Dragon in 2007. I have an interest in Canine Behaviour and completed the COAPE behaviour course in 2012. I have a Dales pony Jak, two rescued cats, and a rescue husband.

I returned from maternity leave having had a baby girl in September 2014.

I became Head Nurse in July 2017.
