I worked as a veterinary nurse for 12-years before starting my own small business, Wags to Whiskas.

As much as I loved the veterinary profession, I really wanted my own business, and being passionate about all animals, looking after people's pets was something I knew I would not only love, but also be very good at.

I own four horses, and like to compete in events such as dressage, show jumping and cross country.

I also own a rescue dog, Piglet, who is deaf and blind. I adopted Piglet as a puppy through my work as a nurse, and she is an adorable and cheeky dog, and one who needs close care and attention due to her special needs. I also have two cats, Daisy and Forest.
