I have always had a strong passion for animals and had hamster and rabbits growing up. I volunteered with animals wherever possible from groomers, veterinary surgeries to the Monkey Sanctuary. I gained a BSc Animal Behaviour & Welfare at Chester University before travelling for 3 years. Once back in the UK i based myself back in Chester where I studied a PGCE and began teaching Animal Care to Mainstream and Autistic learners at a college in North Wales. During this time I also volunteered for Chester Kitty Cat Rescue and Cats Protection where I helped with feral populations, fostering, fundraising, home checking etc. To work in animal welfare and rescue work has always been my ambition so when a job came up at Holly Hedge I jumped at the chance to change location and join the team. I have 4 cats that moved down with me – Maisey, Blue, George and Tilly and a new addition to the cat clan Noah.
