Jessica graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2014 having previously been awarded a degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Birmingham. Shortly after graduation she completed a year-long internship in equine orthopaedics at the Animal Health Trust in Newmarket. Subsequently she worked in Norfolk and south Buckinghamshire before joining our team in 2019. Her main clinical interests are in equine lameness.
Jess has a keen interest in all things outdoors including skiing and dog walking, the latter with her energetic rescued Springer Spaniel, named Kai.
