An equine science graduate who went on to gain a Masters degree and work as a bioveterinary scientist, Jess is now back at University Centre Reaseheath as an HE Lecturer and Course Manager.
She so enjoyed her time with us that she jumped at the chance to join our lecturing team and is now giving our undergraduates the benefit of her knowledge and experience.
Jess, who lectures in Animal Science with Equine specialism, gained a BSc (Hons) Equine Science at Reaseheath and completed a Masters Research Degree in Clinical Sciences at Liverpool University.
She then headed up a team of scientists at the Veterinary Tissue Bank in North Wales, the only facility of its kind in Europe, before deciding to return to academia. The team specialised in allogenic bone grafts and tissues for orthopaedic and reconstructive surgeries, and culturing autologous mesenchymal stem cells for canine and feline osteoarthritis.
University Centre Reaseheath is a great place to study. It’s very student focussed and caring and because it’s a small university you get a lot of individual attention. The lecturers here want you to do well, and because of that the success rates are high. My ‘Reaseheath Experience’ inspired me to carry on in research and to become a bioveterinary scientist.
