“I landed in North London from Australia in 2000 and it has been my home ever since.

I come from a long line of animal lovers and cat owners, and have had two cats of my own, as well as spent a lot of time around, and looked after dogs. My family were more cat than dog people, but I was both, and from a young age would be hanging out with the beagle next door, or spending time with local dogs or my friend's pets.

Most recently, I used to take my friend's lovely white Boxer for a walk and play in the park, and she would also accompany us on weekend breaks.

I love the temperament of dogs and the loving energy they bring. My friends and I are known to spend Summers on Hampstead Heath enjoying watching them play and interact. I have been lucky to transfer this love for animals into working for LDW and enjoy walking with my first LDW dog, Blue, the greyhound.”
