Sarah qualified from Cambridge University Vet School in 2000, where she was president of the University Veterinary Zoological Society. She then spent 18 months in mixed practice in Kent before moving to Leeds in 2002 to join Holly House Veterinary Hospital.
She has a particular interest in treating reptiles, especially chelonia, and small pet mammals, and gained both the RCVS certificate in Zoological Medicine and the ESVPS General Practitioner certificate in Exotic Animal Practice in 2006. She also holds RCVS Advanced Veterinary Practitioner (AVP) status in Zoological Medicine. Sarah has presented at BVZS, iCARE and BSAVA Congresses, and regularly publishes articles on exotic pet medicine. She is the lead author of the gastroenterology chapter in the 3rd Edition of the BSAVA Manual of Reptiles and the author of the Mediterranean Tortoises chapter in the Handbook of Exotic Pet Medicine.
Sarah enjoys teaching and mentoring vets, veterinary nurses and students, and chairs regular exotic journal clubs for colleagues. She is extremely passionate about providing good medical care to the more unusual pet species and to wildlife, and promoting their welfare. At present, at home she has a cheeky cat, a very bouncy black labrador and a Giant African land snail.
