Claire qualified as a veterinary nurse in small animal practice in North London in 2001 and went on to work as a senior nurse at The Queen Mother Hospital for Animals. Whilst in this role she gained the Diploma in Advanced Veterinary Nursing (medical), and worked mainly in anaesthesia and diagnostic imaging. During this time she was responsible for the endoscopy unit in the hospital and attended a human endoscopy technician’s course to broaden her knowledge in this area. Later Claire was a head nurse at Wood Street Veterinary Hospital in north London and developed an interest in laparoscopic surgery as well as flexible endoscopy.
Claire always had an interest in VN training and education and having been a head nurse for a number of years moved into full time lecturing at a college in Staffordshire before joining The College of Animal Welfare in 2013 where she is now centre manager at Potters Bar. She has achieved a Post Graduate Diploma in Veterinary Education at the Royal Veterinary College and is currently working towards her MSc research project.
