I joined the Branch in January 2019 as the Education & Events Officer. Having previously worked in Local Government for 13 years delivering training and education events in schools I saw this role as a combination of my two loves, educating children and adults and organising events to not only reach a wider audience for animal welfare advice but to raise much needed funds for the Branch. It is so rewarding to be part of the journey the animals we deal with go on, I get up in the morning with a purpose, the work of the whole team is inspiring and I am proud to play a part. I never believed in the “perfect” job and enjoying the work you do but this role has proved me wrong on both counts. My favourite animal is a penguin (although we don’t have many of them) but on the domestic front I better say a cat or my son would never forgive me!!
