I am a hard working self motivated individual and have always had a keen interest in animals, their behaviour, and welfare or for pleasure. This interest has been a catalyst for me returning to education and completing a National Diploma in Animal Management and until recently reading for a BSc Hons in Animal behaviour and Training.
I am very welfare orientated and believe that good husbandry practices and environmental enrichment/stimulation allow a captive animal to behave as naturally as possible and reduce environmental stress. I have worked with a broad range of species including; Primates, Macropods, Meerkats, Birds, reptiles and various rodents. I can communicate at all levels and have regulalrly deputised for my present employer and senior management team members in previous roles. i am enthusiastic about passing my knowledge on to others and love learning along with those I instruct.
