Sally qualified from Glasgow University in 2002 and has practised large animal veterinary medicine ever since. She has worked with practices in Cumbria, New Zealand and Somerset, whilst also completing a short period of time as resident vet at Genus bull stud in Wales. Her area of greatest interest is undoubtedly dairy cattle. Having set up Evolution Farm Vets in 2007, she completed her Diploma in Bovine Reproduction in 2008. She has steadily developed more interest in the business side of dairy farming and works hard on helping farmers to make their business more successful through improving the herd health side of their enterprise. Much of this is done on-farm in a consultancy role. But, in 2017, Evolution Farm Training was launched. This is another way in which Sally is able to share her knowledge with farmers. She finds improving their skills on-farm very rewarding and the practically-based Farmer Training which is carried out both in the Practice and on-farm is becoming ever more popular.
Sally is on the Board of Directors for the British Cattle Veterinary Association (BCVA) as well as being a registered BCVA Accredited Johnes Adviser and BVD-Free Advisor.
Evolution is very important to Sally and most of her waking hours are given over to the Practice. But always, running through all that she does, is her devotion to her family. Her ever-supportive husband and her two fantastic children make it all worthwhile (most of the time!)
Whatever spare time is left over is spent at her local CrossFit Box. She is addicted to fitness, runs half marathons on the hills and is always working on her Olympic Lifting in the hope that she may one day do well in some of the CrossFit competitions she insists on entering!
