Imaging, medical and critical care cases are veterinary areas Sophie is particularly passionate about. She enjoys working at PVE because there is never a dull moment working in emergency, regardless of the time of night. “The team here at PVE are an amazing group of individuals (including the clinic cats) who all have a very high standard of patient care and love for the job.”
In her spare time, Sophie enjoys show jumping and eventing as she has a great love for horses. She has a variety of pets including horses, sheep, alpaca, chickens, a wonderful dog called Penny, an adopted clinic cat called Arthur and a piglet called Peppa “who rules the roost!”
