Rebecca qualified as a veterinary surgeon in New Zealand in 2001. She moved to the UK in 2003 and worked as a locum until 2005 when she opened Animates Veterinary Clinic, which now has premises in Thurlby and Market Deeping.
Rebecca has always been involved with animals, she grew up on a dairy farm and has always had pets from guinea pigs to goats. Rebecca then went on to become a vet and she has always thought it is important to do the best by her patients. Arthritis, pain and rehabilitation have always been a special interest for Rebecca and since opening animates has always wanted to have hydrotherapy available. Hydropets is an amazing rehabilitation facility that will compliment veterinary treatment for a number of pets.
Rebecca loves being active and spends a lot of her spare time out and about with friends particularly doing activities such as cycling, swimming, running and will complete her first triathlon in 2013. Rebecca also loves travelling and visiting new and exciting places.
