Lorna graduated from Bristol Veterinary School in 2015 and spent two years in general practice before emigrating to New Zealand where she worked as part of the ECC team in a busy referral hospital. During this time she passed her ISFM accredited memberships in Medicine of Cats to further expand her knowledge of feline medicine.

Lorna returned to the UK in 2022 and undertook a rotating internship at Langford Small Animal Hospital where she was able to partake in clinical research looking at renal biomarkers. She began her Internal Medicine residency at Highcroft Veterinary Referrals (now Bristol Veterinary Specialists) in 2023. Lorna enjoys the challenge of medicine cases and has a special interest in geriatric feline medicine, particularly in relation to endocrinology and nephrology.
