She started her journey by completing her Diploma in Animal Care, shortly followed by an Extended Diploma in Animal Management. A few years later, Kayleigh decided to expand her knowledge some more and completed the Level 2 in Animal Nursing Assistants course. Alongside these courses, she volunteered at a local vets to increase her experience.
