I am also a Certified trainer, an FABC Certified Behaviourist (for cats & dogs) & Fear Free Certified.

In addition to professional qualifications, I am a passionate learner, & have  always attended many veterinary, welfare, behaviour & training lectures & workshops. This ensures I remain up-to-date & following the best current practices.

Since beginning my Veterinary Nursing career in 2000, I have worked in veterinary centres of excellence, as well as general practice clinics. I have learned from world-leading specialists, & have also achieved multiple academic & nursing awards. Training & behavioural care became a large part of my VN work, especially in caring for my cancer patients.

Since 2012, I have been running Inspiring Pet Teaching as a stand-alone teaching, training & behaviour consultancy business. In addition to working with pets & their people, I also regularly collaborate with veterinary practices, & spend a large portion of my working life teaching veterinary & training/behaviour professionals - which I love to do!
