Rebecca qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2006, having previously worked in a Specialist referral practice as their Surgical Team Leader. During this time, she achieved her HE Diploma in Clinical Veterinary Nursing in conjunction with the RCVS Advanced Diploma. Rebecca specialised her studies in Anaesthesia, Surgical nursing and Theatre practice.
In September 2015 Rebecca made the transition away from nursing into a new challenge as Operations Co-ordinator at Calder Vets. This was a broad role and included monitoring and analysing the current systems of provision to check they were effective, and working out a strategy for improving them if required. Liaising with other team members, and branch surgeries to ensure continuity of patient and staff care.
Rebecca then became heavily involved in the build and the procurement of equipment for Paragon Veterinary Referrals and in February 2018 she became the Operations Co-ordinator for Paragon Veterinary Referrals.
She has a real passion to encourage the development of Veterinary Nurses and ensures they are keeping up to date with new standards and equipment.
