I am originally from: Leicestershire.
I have the following qualifications: GCSE in various subjects, AS Level in Psychology, Sociology and Biology.
In the past I have gained experience by: Volunteering and working at Redgate Animal Sanctuary. I’ve also completed work experience at several vets around Leicestershire.
My favourite pastimes include: Horse riding and reading.
My furry friends are: Lot’s! I’ve collected quite the menagerie, including 2 dogs, 2 Gecko’s, an African Grey Parrot, a Gypsy Cob horse named Rodney Trotter, various chickens, a cockerill and a rat named Scabbers!

Something that not many people know about me is: I once owned a Greenbottle Blue Tarantula that I was scared of. I kept her until she passed away naturally – even though I was scared of her!
