Like Sarah, I also come from a farming background, and I think this contributes to my continued interest in working with farm animals today. You might have even seen my name at the bottom of an article in the Scottish Farmer magazine – I’m a regular contributor.
After graduating with a degree in genetics I completed my veterinary degree in 1999. I have been in mixed practice since (with an 18-month interlude working for the commercial company that was associated with “Dolly” the sheep).
I initially joined Hawick Vets as a locum vet in 2004. But as soon as I joined Sarah in ownership four years later, I realised the benefits of being able to make decisions ourselves, rather than having to wait for sign-off from higher levels of management. This allows us to provide veterinary care exactly how we think best.
Today we still thrive on the variety of cases that we deal with on a daily basis, and the opportunity to care for big, small, house-dwelling and field-dwelling animals alike. Our work days are always interesting, always fulfilling and rarely quiet!
