Growing up in Cornwall I spent my childhood surrounded by animals, adored cats, and wanted to be a Vet from the start. I was accepted to study at the Royal Veterinary College in London and graduated in 2005. I spent a year after graduating in Salisbury, but I missed living by the sea, so moved to Brighton and started working at the PDSA Charity Hospital. At this busy practice I treated a wide range of medical and surgical cases, but cats; their welfare and treatment, remained my passion. I had a few years at home when my children were small, and then returned to private practice. Within a year I became the Clinical Director so was responsible for the clinical management of the practice. Alongside this I enrolled in the ISFM feline medicine course, which I completed in 2019 and am now studying towards the ANZCVS membership in feline medicine exams this summer.
The London Cat Clinic is my perfect job, and well worth the commute from Brighton. Working with such a specialist team and caring for your beautiful felines is a complete privilege. I am passionate about all parts of feline medicine and behaviour, but am especially interested in our geriatric patients, the management of co-morbidities and endocrinology.
Outside of work I live with my husband, two children, and our completely adored cats, who I rescued whilst working at the PDSA almost 14 years ago. Ziggy is my constant shadow and Xena has dedicated herself to being best friend and playmate of my children. We enjoy living in this vibrant seaside town and having London just a short train ride away.
