I began my career as a bird keeper at London Zoo, but after a few years moved into animal welfare work. While working for the RSPCA I retrained as a Veterinary nurse, qualifying in 1999.

My interests in life lie in preventative healthcare and avian nursing.

I live with my two cats, Norma and Rita and my aviary birds.
