Francesca completed her Equine internal medicine specialist residency training back at Edinburgh and at the same time was awarded a Masters by Research (with distinction) in real-time three-dimensional echocardiography of the equine left atrium (Thoroughbred racehorses).
She is genuinely interested in all aspects of internal medicine, especially cardiology, neonatology, ophthalmology and gastrointestinal disorders.
Originally from North Yorkshire, Alice grew up eventing horses. She was reserve for the FEI British Pony Event Team in 2011 and went on to represent GB at Haras Du Pin, 2012 in a young rider squad. This inspired her to go on to study veterinary science and graduated from University of Liverpool in 2018. She then completed an internship at Vet Associates Equine Hospital in New Zealand during 2019 where she developed an interest in stud medicine and diagnostic imaging.
Following her internship she travelled in Japan and motorbiked through Vietnam, before starting work at an ambulatory equine practice up in Inverness for 3 months. Alice is excited to start at Alnorthumbria and get to know the clients and area. Outside of work she is often walking her cocker spaniel puppy Nova and plays Lacrosse.
