I started my rescue career early taking the school chickens home in my bag so they couldn’t be sent to the ‘farm’. I have always had a great love of animals and really found her place whilst living in Australia when I began volunteering for the ACT Rescue & Foster Association, temperament testing dogs in city pounds, coordinating and fostering to rescue them. Returning to the UK with her Aussie husband, she began a Degree in Animal Behaviour & Welfare at Hartpury College, before working my way up the ladder working at Animal Sanctuaries. Taking a career break to run my own retail business, I continued to volunteer for The Labrador Rescue Trust but my love of rescues led me back to applying at Holly Hedge and the rest is history. I am mum to Labradors, Cooper and Holly Hedge dog Quin, and Charlie & Jasper my two black Cats.
