I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant with the Sociology, Philosophy and Anthropology Department. I was awarded the Dean's Commendation for my successful completion of the MA in Anthrozoology with the University of Exeter in September 2016. 

Prior to my studies with the University of Exeter, I studied Sociology and English at University College Cork and was awarded College Scholar based on my achievements. Eager to explore my interest in nonhuman animals, I successfully completed a veterinary nursing qualification. From veterinary clinics to wildlife parks, I have worked with human and nonhuman individuals in a variety of settings. Eager to entwine my love of nonhuman animals with my desire to teach, I worked as a teacher in a leading veterinary nursing college in Ireland on their accredited course. My drive to conduct my own research and contribute to wider discourse on animal welfare and personhood has been a driving force in my recent progression to PhD study.
