About: I joined the R(D)SVS in November 2007 as e-programme coordinator of the MSc/Dip/Cert in Equine Science and veterinary online continuing professional development (CPD) courses. We are also in the process of developing new online MSc programmes in animal behaviour and welfare.

I'm a zoology graduate of Trinity College Dublin, and have a Masters in Applied Environmental Science from University College Dublin. I gained experience developing online content as a scientific editor and working as an e-learning developer in further education (West Lothian College and Stevenson College Edinburgh). I'm interested in the development of online learning, particularly as it facilitates global community interaction and creativity. I am currently undertaking the MSc in eLearning at the University of Edinburgh.

I also teach professional skills on the undergraduate veterinary studies programme and am currently investigating the potential of using bee-keeping as part of our teamwork teaching.

I'm never happier than when I'm gardening, but I also love walking in the lovely East Lothian countryside and spending rainy days (of which there are a few!), reading or doing something crafty. I moved to Scotland from Ireland in 2000 and I'm still exploring this magnificent country which I've fallen totally in love with - and it's also where I met my wonderful husband Gavin - the one that keeps me smiling :)
