I have always wanted to work with animals, but finally took the plunge and started on a vet nursing course. Alongside this, I work in the pet shop. I have two hairless sphinx cats and a giant Sulcata tortoise, as well as lots and lots of snakes! I’ve also had chameleons, a bosc monitor, hermit crabs, frogs and tarantulas as pets – my fantasy pet is a sloth! My hobbies include being creative – crochet, embroidery, painting, sweing and many other crafts – and I’m currently learning to play the ukulele.
