Job Role: Keeper

Favourite Animal: Dog

How I got into animal care

I always loved animals while I was growing up - particularly my dog. I used to watch a lot of animal programmes on TV, but I didn't always know that I wanted to work with animals.

I thought animal management courses sounded interesting (I nearly studied criminology instead though!), and studied Animal and Wildlife Management at BSc level.

I did work experience in a range of places, including kennels, dog groomers and SeaLife.

That led me to applying for the kennel keeper job here - it was the first job I applied for after graduating, and I got it!
