Lecturer on MVETPHYS and Post graduate MSc Veterinary physiotherapy. Canine lecturer. Jade is the module leader for Advanced therapeutic techniques and clinical practice for veterinary physiotherapists which are 4th year modules on the MVETphys course.
Jade started her career in the veterinary industry 15 years ago when she qualified as a Veterinary nurse. Her career started in a large multidisciplinary small animal hospital on the south coast dealing with orthopaedics, neurological, medicine and cardiology cases. Jade developed a keen interest in canine orthopaedics and neurology so moved to a small animal referral centre to specialise. Once in practice Jade decided to under take a PgD in veterinary physiotherapy to compliment the cases she was nursing in practice. Once qualified in 2005 Jade set up her own private business and also developed physiotherapy clinics in house at the referral centre. Jade developed a love for neurological rehabilitation and is one of her keen areas of interest. In 2006 Jade started to teach on the Harper Adams course and then later the Writtle post graduate course. After several years of teaching Jade decided this was where she wanted her career to take a different path into teaching. So 2016 Jade joined Writtle teaching staff to deliver on MVETPhys and Post graduate MSc. Along side teaching Jade is continuing to run her private physiotherapy practice to stay relevant to industry and maintain good links. Jade is currently on the executive board for the NAVP, and is undertaking her PGCHEP qualification in teaching. Jade is looking at starting a research based MSc next year in 2018.
