Through veterinary science I have had incredible opportunities to work all over the world, in a wide range of roles, and with people from vastly different economical, cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Experiencing the animal-related struggles and triumphs shared by humans from Somalia to Sydney has reinforced just how important animal health and well-being are to all of us.
Completing a Master of Social Change and Development has provided a structural backbone to my practice, enabling a more complex understanding of the challenges faced by humans as we work to ensure our populations are fed and clothed, whilst improving on animal health and well-being.
I have always had a strong interest in teaching and helping others understand their animals and their needs, and I have a particular passion for preventative medicine, epidemiology, and welfare.
I have been described as logical, intuitive, and patient by my peers, and thoroughly enjoy learning and sharing knowledge, and using creativity to tackle the complex and wicked problems we face together.
