Almost before I could talk, my passion for animal welfare led me to pursue a career as a Vet. Aged 14, I began volunteering at The Farm Animal Sanctuary, while it was still based in Bromsgrove.

When the Sanctuary moved to Evesham I followed, and continued to volunteer each
Saturday, until I went to Veterinary College in 2000. Qualifying from the Royal Veterinary College in 2005, I went to work in mixed practice in Worcestershire and Warwickshire for 4 years. In 2009 I moved to MacArthur Barstow and Gibbs in Droitwich, pursuing my passion for Farm Veterinary Work.

Janet and I had kept in touch during my time at University, and through my early career. It was an honour when she asked if I could come and do the veterinary work for the Sanctuary. Since then, I have become more involved with the committee, fundraising, and admin side of the charity’s work, becoming a Trustee in 2019.
