Nicola

I have wanted to be a Veterinary Surgeon since I was a child and as I grew older, I realised I wanted to specialise as an equine vet. Achieving this goal was a lifelong dream come true.

I launched my own veterinary practice in 2010 and the business subsequently has grown rapidly. I am now Clinical Director and employ a team of six vets.

Through my role as an equine vet, I have been involved with all types of horses and ponies but the welfare cases always do touch me. To be able to help a horse or pony that is suffering and protect it from any further harm is a true privilege.

I have been involved in many welfare cases on behalf of the RSPCA and have acted as an expert witness in court on numerous occasions.

In my spare time I enjoy upcycling furniture and spending time in the countryside with my partner and our two dogs.

I feel honoured to be a member of the Board of Trustees and to be asked to be Chairman is the icing on the cake. I guarantee that while acting on behalf of Here4Horses, animal welfare will be my primary concern and I will do everything in my power and ability to help as many horses as we can with our amazing team.

we do is worth it to see their happy faces'
