I joined the practice in March 2013 as a nursing assistant / receptionist. Previous to this I was working as a qualified dental nurse for ten years. The career change was prompted by my love of animals. At home I have two dogs, Poppy a basset hound x Shar Pei, and Orla a Springer Spaniel; I also have a giant African land snail called Norbert. However, the love of my life is my horse Honey (but don’t tell my husband). Honey has been part of my life for eight years and takes up most of my spare time. When I’m not out riding or walking my dogs I love to spend time with my husband, friends and family.
