I qualified from Bristol University in 1984. I then took up a farm animal house job in Liverpool University Veterinary School where I trained final year students' practical skills. Derek was one of the students I trained to rectal cows!
After several years in large animal practice I moved into small animal work with the start of a family. We have Katherine (1990) Angus (1994) and Finlay (1998).
Derek and I started Copeland Veterinary Surgeons together in October 1999. This is our ‘fourth child’.
Family and work make for a very busy life. I love travelling, battle to keep reasonably fit and I am always looking for some “me time”!
