Ria always knew she wanted to work with animals but she didn’t know in what context. She studied Zoology at Swansea University achieving a BSc degree. After this, she went traveling for a year and discovered her passion for Veterinary Nursing whilst working as a kennel assistant. From there, Ria embarked on a two year diploma to qualify as a Registered Veterinary Nurse and has never looked back!
Ria used to foster for Cat’s Protection, but found it hard not to adopt every old cat she saw. Now, she helped with their trapping, neutering and releasing of feral cats.
Ria moved to Cookham with her boyfriend, Jonny, in June 2019. They love exploring the area with their Golden Labrador, Amber. When Ria is not safe guarding Amber from eating everything she sees, Ria enjoys horse riding, yoga, reading and duvet days.
