I started Mercer and Hughes as a consult assistant in 2019. Before that I worked as a PCA at the RVC and left to do my Patient care assistant course at The College of Animal Welfare, followed by a year of my veterinary nurse diploma. I left to have my two children and I have now been lucky enough to continue my nurse training at Dick White referral as an apprentice, whilst working part time.

I have always loved animals and have spent over 10 years working in different veterinary environments. At home we have a black labrador ‘Buddy’ and a minature dachshund ‘Daisy’. We also have two tortoises Taffy and Biscuit, two bunnies Woody and Blossom and a frog that my son chose called Edward.
