Avril is a Registered Veterinary Nurse and Registered Equine Nurse. After qualifying in 2000 Avril moved into the equine sector where she worked at a busy hospital as Head Nurse for 10 years. She has been part of the physio-vet team since 2016. Avril works with the patients, treating them on the rehab side, also advising on the training aspects of the patients’ home exercise programme.

Avril owns 5 dogs and has a real passion for dog training and the sport of Agility! This all began with her first rescue terrier ‘Ellie’ who is now 12 years old and happily retired. Despite each of Avril’s dogs coming with a host of training challenges, she took each on to compete at Kennel Club level.
In her spare time she enjoys competing and training her 2 young cocker spaniels, plus enjoying long walks with her canine family.
