Very varied until I joined the world of veterinary. I began as part time receptionist after having my first son. Gradually increased my hours and responsibilities over the years and ended up as a Practice Manager for 18 years. This was a great foundation for being a Territory Manager for NVS.
Being happy. We spend a long time at work, I need to get on with the people I work with and feel appreciated in the job I do. So long as you can smile at the end of the day – it’s been a good day!
The people. I meet a wide variety of people in this job from Farm Vets to Specialist Surgeons in high tech hospitals and the thing they all have in common is they genuinely care. Plus, I cover Yorkshire where you can get the best cup of tea in the country.
Walk my dog, ride my horse and if I can get away without cooking going out for a nice meal and a few glasses of red wine.
My family. We have two sons aged 19 & 21 who tower over us like giants. Amazingly after the toddler tantrums and teenage stropping they have turned out pretty well.
Happy, thoughtful & friendly
