Profile picAfter graduating from the University of Liverpool Vet School with an intercalated master’s degree from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, I worked in practice. In 2011, I decided to undertake a PhD at Harper Adams University focusing on dairy herd health planning. During my PhD, I became passionate about knowledge transfer through lecturing to undergraduate students and providing workshops for dairy farmers. After completing my PhD, I worked at The Webinar Vet which provides CPD for the veterinary industry. I am a trustee for the Animal Welfare Foundation, a charity which funds animal welfare projects, provides educational materials and stimulates debates on animal welfare concerns.

I enjoy writing about subjects that I feel passionate about such as veterinary medicine, animal welfare, knowledge transfer, quantitative and qualitative research, technology and veterinary life in general. The name of this website, Vet Thinking Aloud, came to me as I was writing my first blog post because it explained exactly what I was doing! If you fancy reading one vet’s thoughts on a range of different topics, follow this blog website by providing your email address or on Twitter @stacethevet so you’ll know when new blogs have been published. The views expressed on this account are my own and may not necessarily reflect the views of organisations I work with.
