I guess I have been around horses all my life. My grandmother in Cornwall had a profound influence on me as a youngster. She owned and bred a string of warmblood horses in over 20 years and I helped bring on and sell the majority of them. They helped me gain the respect and love I have of horses today, allowing me to compete nationally at show-jumping – although this was a few years ago now! Since then I have always kept my hand in, through a fairly long spell at the university, firstly Exeter and then Cambridge for my veterinary degree. During the last 5 years I have worked in mixed practice in Norfolk (a lovely place – I would recommend a visit) and Somerset, realising my interest to work with just the large animal species.
Getting the opportunity to help develop the equine services offered at Evolution is pretty much my ideal job. To be able to work in beautiful Somerset is definitely a plus point, along with this I hope to offer a down-to-earth, friendly approach to equine vet work, keeping alive the Evolution ethos.
