Having grown up in a farming family near York and spending most of my free time as a child outside with either horses or dogs (or preferably both), a career in veterinary medicine was always my dream. I first came to Holmefield as a final year student to gain experience in pig medicine (as the practice in those days was a traditional mixed practice) and was delighted to join the team a year later as a ‘fledgling vet’ in July 1994.
Having worked my way through the ranks and found myself as Clinical Director of the company, I now spend the majority of my time in a management role but still thrive on the time I spend doing the ‘real veterinary work’ I love. I still get a buzz from working with animals and their owners every day and feel lucky to have spent my whole working life at Holmefield. Like most vets, my home has its fair share of 4 legged inhabitants too – Fletcher is a loyal and reliable Labrador and has incredible patience with the latest addition Lincoln, who is a whirlwind of a Dachshund, plus 3 elderly cats Spencer, Cheeky and Tango.
