Lucie Goodwin

Lucie graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2004 and spent the following two years working in a busy small animal hospital in Bristol. Having developed a love of internal medicine, she returned to the RVC in 2006 to undertake first an internship and subsequently a residency in small animal medicine. Following completion of her residency she returned to the West Country to work for the University of Bristol and Langford Veterinary Services as a teaching fellow and internal medicine clinician. Lucie worked at Langford for two and a half years, before taking a short career break to help establish the charity 'Brighter Bristol'.  Following this she worked as an Internal Medicine Consultant for Axiom Veterinary Laboratories before joining the BSAVA as Head of Education in June 2018.

Since qualifying, Lucie has also had experience of working within the veterinary charity sector and private referral hospitals. She is passionate about education and postgraduate support of vets. She is also interested in the development of evidence based veterinary medicine to establish best practice techniques.

Outside of work, she loves to travel and enjoys being creative. She continues to volunteer for charities in the Bristol area.
