Annabel graduated from Liverpool University in 2016. After working in mixed practice in Scotland for 14 months she decided to venture back home to the sunnier south. She has a particular interest in small animal medicine and hopes to go on to gain further qualifications in this area. When not at work she enjoys climbing mountains and generally being outdoors. She has two cats called Pumpkin and Pakora, although Pumpkin prefers to think of herself as a dog.
