What are some of the things you love about the veterinary industry?
I became a vet because of the love that animals bring into our lives as our companions, and I believe it is our responsibility to ensure their comfort and happiness as well. And it is really cool that I get to play a big role in that. Also, veterinary medicine is a fun and challenging field to be in. Special veterinary interests include diagnostic imaging and cardiology.
MVG is a great place to work because…
I joined MVG because I wanted to be part of a supportive workplace where continuing development is encouraged and where patient well being is priority. I am also very appreciative of clinics that are supportive of new graduates entering the profession.
Description of your pets / spouse / family
I have a dog called Toby, who was supposed to be a Miniature Fox Terrier, but grew to be 11kg (I suspect some Staffy in there). He still misbehaves like a puppy despite being senior!
