About Katie

As a little girl, I was obsessed with animals and wildlife.  I often lined worms up on the arm of the settee so that they could watch the T.V. with me!  After school, I worked in a bank for a few years and then took some time out to travel around Australasia, where I was bitten by a spider!  Not put off, I decided to commence university and gained a BSc (Hons.) in Animal Biology.  My dissertation was a study into the reintroduction of wild boar to England.  Since then, I have worked mostly in schools, carrying out administrative and science roles.  I have also worked in a veterinary practice as a trainee vet nurse.

My work experience lies mainly in customer service and administration and my interests continue to be science, wildlife and conservation.  I am slightly obsessed with recycling and environmental issues and can often be seen acting as the ‘plastic police’ around my friends and family.
