What is your favourite animal?
At what age did you decide to work in the animal industry?
I have always loved animals but only realised it could be a possibility to work with them 5 years ago after I started volunteering at a wildlife rescue centre.
Do you have any pets of your own?
Growing up, I always had rabbits or guinea pigs, hamsters and budgies. As an adult I used to have an amazing house rabbit called Mango who lived cage free in my house and is sorely missed. More recently though I adopted a gorgeous black and white cat who was handed in to us as a stray here at the practice. He’s a house cat and lives a charmed life… in fact he’s treated so well my colleagues have given him the prefix “Lord”!
What is your favourite thing about working for easipetcare?
I love the people I work with as they have the same passion and compassion for animals as I do, but I’m also really proud to work for a company whose ethos is to make good pet care accessible to all. That’s just fabulous!
If you had a different career what would it be?
Well I used to work in International Removals and Shipping so I guess that… but I’d love to have been a Wildlife TV Presenter visiting lots of different countries and telling people about the amazing animals.
What is the best piece of advice you would give to a pet owner or client?
Having a pet is a big responsibility. Do your homework before you get one to ensure they’re the right type of breed for your lifestyle. Adopt – don’t shop!
Do you or have you done any additional volunteer work with animals outside of work?
I volunteer every fortnight at a wildlife rescue and rehab centre called Wildlife Aid Foundation. I get to handle and help so many animals that I would rarely otherwise glimpse in the wild such as badgers, weasels, hedgehogs and birds of prey.
What kind of animal do you think you are most like and why?
I wasn’t sure but my oldest friend told me I was like a wolf (loyal, team player, intelligent) but with a colourful parrot on my head!
