Biography

Kim qualified as a vet from the University of Cambridge in 2007, and worked in mixed veterinary practice in the Welsh/English borders, with a focus on farm animal medicine. She has a particular interest in sheep health and production, and has completed the Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (Sheep) in 2014. Kim is a RCVS registered Advanced Practitioner in sheep medicine. She spent two years in the Farm Animal Practice at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary School from 2016, as a Senior Clinical Training Scholar in Farm Animal Health and Production (Sheep), where she registered as a Resident with the European College of Small Ruminant Health Management, and undertook research in ovine parasitology.

Kim is interested in training veterinary students and farmers and has been involved in a number of programmes, covering a variety of subjects, related to sheep health.  She has also co-authored a book for smallholder sheep keepers, and provides preventative health advice and services for flocks. Her main interests combine farm animal clinical work, veterinary education and on-farm flock health management with clinical research. She is an active member of the Sheep Veterinary Society and ECSRHM.
