I have a particular passion for natural animal nutrition and enrichment.

 I studied Animal Care (received academic awards of Excellence both years - 1999 & 2000) & Agricultural Science in High School as well as being on the High Schools Sheep Showing team for three years. I have done volunteer work for RSPCA &

I share my life with Bella (Lhasa Apso, who sadly passed away 14/02/2022 at 13/14 years of age), Basil (Shih Tzu now 15yrs), Satinka (Shorthaired Tabby), Aslan (Shorthaired Tabby),  Finley & Willoughby (Both have since passed away), and two lively Labradoodles Wilfred & Lottie, as well as a flock of cheeky parrots.
