Occupation: Veterinary Physiotherapist

Why did you choose to study at Writtle University College?
The course was developed in partnership with Equinenergy who I had trained with and this was the next stepping stone in my career path to gain more knowledge and expertise and to be able to apply for the Postgraduate Diploma course to become a Veterinary Physiotherapist.

What does Writtle University College mean to you?
Writtle provided a good learning experience and environment to get back into studying as a mature student.

What did you particularly enjoy about your course?
I particularly liked the wide breadth of subjects covered in the course. This has given me a broad depth of knowledge in many subjects that clients often ask about such as behaviour, nutrition and biomechanics.

My Current Job
Veterinary Physiotherapist, Woof Neigh Therapy. Previously qualified as an Equine and Canine Bodyworker. Completing my degree at Writtle enabled me to continue my training to become a Veterinary Physiotherapist.

Future Plans
I have now completed a PgD in Veterinary Physiotherapy and have plans to complete a dissertation to top up to a MSc. Alongside the study I run my own practice Woof Neigh Therapy from my home in Rutland - covering Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and Rutland.
