Emma graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2019. She’s always been fascinated with all things equine and has owned her riding pony Kavanagh since the age of 12. Following graduation she spent time volunteering with SPANA in Morocco looking after the working horses and donkeys that are so vital to peoples livelihoods there. She completed a 13 month internship in a busy equine clinic on the welsh border, where she took an interest in Medicine and Anaesthesia. Emma joined Oaklands Veterinary Centre in February 2021 and has thoroughly enjoyed helping the equine population in the North East achieve their best.
In her spare time you can find her indulging in arts and crafts, or out exploring the countryside with a very over exuberant Welsh Collie.
In her spare time she enjoys being out and about with her working Cocker Spaniel, Roo, as well as going to the gym and baking.
