In addition Helen also holds the following qualifications:

Helen is also a clinical coach to help student veterinary nurses with their practical training.

Helen joined the team at Pride Veterinary Centre in February 2018, and is now based at our Oakwood practice.

Her main interest is nurse clinics, where she can advise pet owners on flea and worming treatments, neutering and many other consultations. Helen has a specific interest in nutrition, with a key focus on  weight management and dietary advice.

Outside of work, Helen enjoys spending time with her cat Floss, who she adopted as a rescue from a practice she locumed at. She is roughly 10 years old and rules the roost. She also likes to go out looking at wildlife (including birds, mammals, dragonflies and insects) with her partner.
