Jacqui graduated from Bristol University in 1981 and immediately went in to small animal practice in Liverpool. Having moved to the North East a year later she set up her own small animal practice after the birth of her son in 1986.
The practice grew rapidly and necessitated building purpose built premises in 1997 which were built to Small Animal Hospital standards with Hospital status being granted in 2002. The practice is now a four vet 100% small animal practice.
Jacqui achieved her Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in September 2000 and continues to the present time to have a special interest in surgery.
Jacqui chairs the Practice Standards Group.
