Hi all, I am Aimee Knight and I hail from sunny South Africa. I graduated from Onderstepoort Veterinary Facility in Pretoria in 2014, and arrived in the UK in July 2019. Life is mostly ruled by my silly ginger Staffie Cross as well as adventures outside, both on land and in the water ( some temperatures I am still adapting to! )
You will hear me do silly voices for puppies, kittens, and most of the other furries that come into Alders. I love my job, it is challenging and inspiring and often heart wrenching but the happy head rubs and wagging tails at a day's end will always make it worthwhile.
