Jessica is a veterinary surgeon who is board certified in Equine Surgery and met Grace whilst heading the hospital at the Valley Equine Hospital in Lambourn. She is now a freelance surgeon, which allows her more time for other pursuits such as being involved in charities and spending time with her twin boys.
She has presented veterinary presentations at national and international seminars, has taught numerous CPD courses on specialised equine subjects and was an examiner for the RCVS certificates six times. She holds the RCVS certificate in Equine Surgery (Orthopaedics), is a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons and is an RCVS and European recognised specialist in Equine Surgery. She is the chief editor of ‘An Atlas of Equine Ultrasonography’.
She is a keen motorcyclist and one of the original members of the “Vets with Horsepower” team, who do annual motorcycle lecture tours and have raised more than £280,000 for working equid charities. Through working in Lambourn she came to know Grace and the work HEROS does, and has treated a number of HEROS horses. She is delighted to be able to take a more involved role with HEROS.
