After completing a degree in Equine Science in 2009 through the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, Jemma went on to gain her Registered Veterinary Nurse qualification in 2014, working within a busy mixed practice in South Wales. This allowed Jemma to further her Veterinary knowledge and understanding of both small animal and equines.
During her education, Jemma always had a a keen interest in physiotherapy techniques, so it was only natural that she undertook the animal physiotherapist qualification with The College of Animal Physiotherapy Ltd.
Jemma has worked with horses for over 15 years, competing her own ID X to Medium Level Dressage, judging numerous dressage competitions and competed with the University riding team at the National Championships in both show jumping and dressage. She owns a particularly special Bull Lurcher and enjoys cani-cross and man-trailing events with her. Jemma has worked in practice to rehabilitate many dogs undergoing orthopaedic procedures, neurological conditions and various ailments through the methods of physiotherapy and veterinary nursing combined.
Jemma has further since completer her Canine Hydrotherapy Level 3 certificate with Hawksmoor Hydrotherapy and is looking forward to acquiring some training and teaching qualifications in the near future.
It has always been a dream of Jemma's to open a specific rehabilitation centre for canine's that uses a holistic approach to the patients needs to get the best treatment protocol in place to maximise results for these furry friends!
