I have worked within the veterinary industry for more than 15 years. During this time I have hand-reared over 200 kittens for various charities. I have always been animal mad and live at home with my 2 crazy dogs, 4 cats, 1 guinea pig, as well as my husband and 2 children. When I’m not at home or at work, I can be found at the farm with my horse, galloping across the fields, practising cross country jumps or dressage.

I grew up with animals as a child so now being back and settled in Liverpool, I have been able to get my own dog. She is called Daisy and she is a Cocker Spaniel X Golden Retriever. In the future I’d love to rescue a dog and some hens! I also love travelling and spending weekends in the Lake District.
