Emily graduated from Reaseheath with a 2:1 BSc Honours degree in Equine Science. She particularly enjoyed studying modules on mammalian biochemistry and physiology, and her interest in injury and rehabilitation has led to her choice of career.
After graduating, Emily entered the equestrian industry as an assistant yard manager at a large equestrian centre before she decided to take a break from working with horses.
During her studies Emily had undertaken a work placement at her local veterinary practice and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Knowing that she had always wanted to work in the veterinary sector, Emily contacted the vet she had shadowed during her placement to ask advice about pursuing a career in veterinary nursing.
Emily has since secured a position as a veterinary assistant with the Vets4Pets group and is soon to embark on her formal training to become a veterinary nurse.
Without the support and guidance of my lecturers I would never have gained work experience in a large animal practice. I absolutely love what I’m doing and don’t see myself doing anything else.
Due to my lack of small animal experience it was the knowledge of mammalian biochemistry and veterinary physiology I developed at Reaseheath that enabled me to secure this job. My employers have been impressed with how I apply scientific knowledge in my approach to work.
