After graduating from the Royal Veterinary College, Alison worked in mixed practice in the UK. A move to Denmark allowed her to experience different aspects of the veterinary profession, including small animal practice ownership. An interest in dermatology, which had started early in her career, developed further and a desire to specialise was realised in 2014, when she returned to the Royal Veterinary College to undertake a three year residency training in veterinary dermatology.
Alison thoroughly enjoys all aspects of clinical dermatology, but is particularly interested in ear disease, and allergic skin disease. She plans to sit the European specialist board exams in 2018.
