A farmers daughter with a lifetime of animal care experience and an enthusiastic equestrian... I have worked within equine and small animal veterinary practices, volunteering at rescue centres and being a horse owner myself, I wholeheartedly understand how important our equine friends are to us.  Similarly, a dog owner and lover, they are an extension to our family and we love them dearly.  Our companions truly deserve the very best of everything and I pride myself in offering a consciencious and thorough service with treatments tailored to the individual.

I have progressed to the highest level of education possible in my field and obtained my qualification from the most successful Veterinary Physiotherapy educational institute in the country (The National Student Survey, 2021).  Not only am I passionate about what I do and with a keen interest in biomechanics but I also care deeply. My love of animals is what got me here in the first place!
