I have twenty four years experience in first opinion practice. I was the founder and practice principal of a busy mixed practice in the New Forest for fifteen years, I also founded and ran an emergency out of hours practice covering Bournemouth and Poole and have a broad range of experience across most species and clinical presentations. I am the founder and chief executive of the international charity Worldwide Veterinary Service that champions animal welfare in places where there is no veterinary aid. I believe veterinary care should be both accessible and affordable. My career objective is to help as many animals as possible and I hope this platform will enhance my capacity to support where needed.
