Notes : Grew up around lots of animals, always wanted to be a large animal vet - I may still get to that! I love the fire service and especially the technical rescue aspect. I am very much an outdoors type person and when my dogs come along I'm even happier! If I have to be inside then I am in the kitchen cooking up something good to eat
