Amy graduated as a Veterinary Surgeon from the University of Sydney in 2004. She spent two years working in small animal practices in Melbourne and Canberra in Australia, where she developed a strong interest in internal medicine. She enrolled in post-graduate courses from the University of Sydney and decided to start the path of specialisation.
In 2007, Amy was selected as an intern in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery at the University of Sydney. During this time she completed projects on hyperthyroidism in cats and her graduate certificate in veterinary clinical studies. In 2008, she sat exams and became a member of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists – Small Animal Medicine.
In mid 2008, Amy started an internal medicine residency at the Small Animal Specialist Hospital (SASH) in Sydney. During this busy 3 year residency, Amy did further training at the University of Colorado, University of Sydney and Royal Veterinary College. She presented at several conferences, and wrote three peer-review papers including:
– Pituitary Apoplexy in a dog, Australian Veterinary Practitioner, 2011 (Awarded best case report by the Australian Small Animal Veterinary Association in 2012).
– Canine Mycobacterium Avium in a dog, Australian Veterinary Practitioner, 2012
– A retrospective study on feline laryngeal disease, 69 cases, Australian Veterinary Practitioner 2012 (Awarded best case report by the Australian Small Animal Veterinary Association 2013).
Amy moved to England to support her husband (a diagnostic imager at the Royal Veterinary College) in 2012. From 2012-2014 she worked at the renowned Willows Veterinary Referral Centre in Solihull. She joined the team at Village Vets in July 2014. Amy is in the process of completing her specialist examinations to become board-certified. She is happy to see referral cases in internal medicine. Her particular interests are endocrinology, gastrointestinal disease, and feline medicine.
When Amy is not working or studying, she enjoys spending time in the English Countryside running. Amy is particularly interested in contributing to the high level of support and expert care of her patients, their owners and the veterinarians who are associated with Village Vet. She is happy to give advice, and discuss cases with veterinarians on the phone, as well as seeing cases on a referral basis.
