I graduated in 2009 from the Royal Veterinary College and opened Medivet Canvey Island in 2010. The practice has grown over the years and in 2017 Ian joined me to partner the practice. In 2019 we both also took partnership of Medivet Benfleet. I have an interest in exotics, laser surgery including BOAS airway surgery and reconstructive surgery. At home I have two naughty welsh springer spaniels, Fen and Rupert, two older moggies, Tiny cat and Jasper, and two identical abyssinian kittens, James and Dorian. I also love working for the Medivet rhino project in South Africa in my spare time.
