I was lucky enough to have been given the opportunity two years ago to become a Veterinary Practice Manager.  I see my role as being part of a team that aims to give the best to our clients and their pets.  I joined the VPMA as soon as I became aware of the work and support it provided, and I am thrilled to be taking a more active role now.  The meetings I have attended have been a source of networking and having a time and place to discuss issues that are relevant and happening day to day in practice, and I would like to develop this sharing of experiences.

Home is Glynneath, with Waterfall Country and the Brecon Beacons on my doorstep, which lets me indulge in one of my favourite things, being outdoors in all weathers.  2016 has been a year of long distance and mountain walking, and I have achieved a number of challenges, one being in June the Welsh 3 Peaks in aid of Ty Hafan, a childrens hospice charity. When I am home I love to entertain and cook for my husband Neil, family and friends.

Here's to 2017 and the new challenges it will bring, and the new friends I am about to meet.
