About Me: I'm originally from Cornwall and now live & work in Durham. I completed my studies in Kosice, Slovakia.

About Me: Only 3% of veterinary nurses are male though I like to think I'm as passionate about my job as my female colleagues. My greatest interest lies in medical nursing, however, the variety of roles, in medicine, surgery, radiography, on call, etc is something that makes this such a great vocation. Though each nurse at Dunelm has their specialty, we can interchange without any problem and make a great team!
