I qualified in 1999 from Liverpool University. I initially worked in a mixed practice, with a lot of horses and even co-authored a  book Vet Clinic Horses, by Hamlyn. After starting a family we headed to Devon, to be closer to Cornwall. (sorry I am Cornish at heart!)  I enjoy all aspects of surgical and medical veterinary medicine. My main interests include pain management especially in geriatric patients, acupuncture, cardiology and ultrasonography, especially of the abdomen and heart.  I also teach sailing and have been a RYA qualified sailing instructor for over 21 years, and teach sailing every Friday evening from April to July at Starcross Yacht Club.. We have a great junior section at Starcross Sailing Club and regularly get well over 60 children out on the water.   I am also a partner in a small business Gardner and Hill (www.gardnerandhill.co.uk), selling high quality photographic homewares which I run with a colleague in my spare time. Any other free time revolves around my family, and my cat and dog, singing in a local choir, playing the flute and recorder in a small instrumental group, swimming, sailing and walking.
