I graduated from Myerscough College with a foundation degree to become a Registered Veterinary Nurse in July 2018, and was fortunate enough to be able to join such a welcoming team at Highgate for my first ‘real’ job. As I live near Appleby, I previously spent my 3 years of training at a practice in Carlisle so it was nice to be slightly closer to home. I am continuing my training for a further two years in order to gain a BSc (Hons) degree in Veterinary Nursing.
My favourite part of the job is nursing the medical cases as I feel it is the most rewarding when they get to go back home. When I’m not at work I still spend the majority of my time with the animals, having a keen interest in horses means that free time is usually spent following my cousin around the country making sure her Fell pony, Raisbeck Calico looks presentable in the show ring. However if we do happen to get a weekend off I enjoy riding my horse Marco and walking my Weimaraner Mia, although it is often her walking me!
