She developed an interest in care of the elderly, pain management and acupuncture and obtained the ESVPS GP Certificate in Western Acupuncture and Chronic Pain Management in 2013.

In 2015 she set up Selix Vets and obtained the ESVPS GP Certificate in Animal Behaviour. She has a special interest in behavioural problems related to health issues.
