I qualified as an RVN in 2008 with my BSc (Hons) in Veterinary Nursing Science from Hartpury College. I moved to the Rowe Veterinary Hospital, Bristol in 2013 as Deputy Head Nurse and became Head Nurse in 2014. I currently also have nursing advisory role for Rowe Referrals. My interests include surgical nursing, diagnostic imaging and advanced anaesthesia and I provide CPD for practices throughout the South West and South Wales. Outside of work, I also enjoy providing CPD for both vets and nurses and enjoy educating my young horse in a sedate country lifestyle. By being on the IVC veterinary nursing committee, I hope to be a voice for the nurses and care assistants in my regional area and hope to be able to ensure IVC encourage our skills to be utilised, for new skills to be learnt, and for sharing of knowledge throughout our large number of practices.
