Excel CPD

A Little Bit About Me


'Late Night At Work' - note the feline assistant, canine cushion and chocolates!

Excel CPD was founded in 2009 by Michelle Morris, previously a vet, who wanted to achieve a career within the profession, with a better work-life balance.  At the time, there was very little CPD aimed specifically at veterinary nurses, and so Excel CPD was formed, to provide tailored courses exclusively for the veterinary nurse profession.

Michelle is married with 3 young children, a cat (who likes to help with binding course notes!) and more recently a Vizsla puppy who is in training to help with the practical courses.

Michelle has a great love of writing lists, organising everyone and everything and is completely addicted to chocolate!
