Jessica has always been passionate about animal care and welfare, and it was evident from a very young age that she was going to pursue a career working with the creatures that she loved best.
Jessica worked with horses from the age of 14 at a local equestrian centre where duties ranged from yard work to instructing and grooming at BE level for her employer, which has given her a good appreciation of the workload and organisation needed within the equestrian industry. It has also showed her the vast diversity in work load and expectations that exists in our current equine population. Besides this Jessica has also worked for numerous years in small animal veterinary practice, helping to build her knowledge and understanding of dog conditions and needs.
Jessica’s career with animals commenced with a BSc (hons) in Animal Science at Aberystwyth University and it was here that she developed a passion for animal physiotherapy and rehabilitation. The next step had to be McTimoney after seeing the effects first hand and Jessica completed an MSc in Animal Manipulation Therapy through the McTimoney Chiropractic College. As well as being fully qualified and insured she also holds a certificate in animal massage and continuously improves her knowledge and approach by attending seminars and courses focused around complementary treatments and animal biomechanics.
