I graduated from Newcastle University in 2017 with a BSc in Agriculture with Honours in Livestock Production Science. Not being from a farming family has never held me back; from the age of ten I started working on neighbouring farms. I have worked with the livestock and arable sectors; involving working in a grain store for three years during my degree. On top of this I have obtained my AI certificate and worked for a year in New Zealand on a dairy farm milking 800 cows.

I joined Promar in May 2019 as part of the Genus Graduate Scheme. I am now working for the South Consultancy team where I am lucky enough to work and gain expertise alongside many of the South Consultants. I have helped with a project within Ukraine on a dairy farm reference model and spent a week there helping to implement it. I am looking forward to gaining more experience in the coming months.

I live in Monmouthshire with my partner and our two dogs on his family’s dairy farm. In my spare time I enjoy shooting, cooking and being out in the countryside.

Recently I completed a certification with the Register of Mobility Scorers with the aim to improve the mobility of all UK dairy herds.
