I was previously the Head Shepherdess at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire. Prior to this I have spent the last 4 seasons as a freelance lambing shepherd for various farmers. At Hartpury I was required to work across all enterprises so in addition to my sheep experience I have also gained basic experience in milking, beef, calving and young stock rearing both in dairy and veal calves.

Farming background

Prior to beginning my degree I was from a non-farming background but had obtained basic livestock experience and knowledge through my teenage years. I took every opportunity to learn as much as I could from anybody willing to teach me and was asked by the Head Shepherd at university to assist him with lambing. Following this I was offered a placement on a local farm where I completed 500 hours work experience on a commercial and pedigree Charolais flock during lambing, weaning, finishing and taking to market. After completing that placement I was asked to work on a paid basis during lambing seasons before being offered the role as Head Shepherd at Hartpury College.


I enjoy walking the dogs and keeping active.
