I am extremely fortunate to have had an interesting and rewarding veterinary career pursuing a professional vocation in an industry for which I have a continuing passion. I have had experience of a range of dairy farm systems in the UK and NZ coupled with further academic training and professional engagement appropriate to these different systems.
I have always believed that there is a role for quality research within a practice setting and I am now engaged full time on research within Veterinary practice. Bringing science directly into a practice helps keep us all up to date and practicing genuine evidence-based medicine. It is not without its challenges, but it opens other avenues of thought, ideas and opportunities that can be woven into the mix that is practice.
