Rebecca qualified in 2001 from Brooksby Agricultural college. After working in first opinion practices, Rebecca Joined the Scarsdale Veterinary Group in 2002.  In 2004 the opportunity arose to transfer to one of Scarsdale’s branches as head nurse.  Rebecca was here for two years before moving back to the main hospital to study for her advanced nursing diploma via Myerscough college and the University of Central Lancashire.

In 2011 the main small animal hospital moved to a purpose-built hospital. Here Rebecca was asked to take on the role of head theatre nurse, setting up the theatre department and protocols whilst managing a team of six RVN’s and organising surgical lists for five theatres.

Rebecca’s main interests lie in wound management, orthopaedics and infection control.  She is currently part of the infection control team at Pride Veterinary Centre whilst also completing the ILM level 3 award in leadership and management and a post graduate certificate in veterinary education.
