Frances qualified from Bristol University in 2001 and after 18 months in mixed practice, moved into purely small animal work in 2003, where she developed an interest in surgery.
She joined Scarsdale Vets in January 2008 to work as one of the surgeons in the hospital and obtained her Royal College Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2008. Since then Frances has been working in the hospital helping to manage the busy in-house surgical caseload and taking some external referrals, and in May 2011 became Associate Partner, and became a Partner in June 2015.
Her free time is spent looking after and walking her elderly, but still lively spaniels. She enjoys skiing, reading and catching up with friends over cake when she gets the time.
