She completed her rotating internship at Louisiana State University, followed by two research fellowships at Michigan State University and Nihon University. 

She then completed her residency at the RVC, before achieving diplomate status of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (Cardiology) in 2017. 

Anne's interests include treatment and management of congestive heart failure, feline cardiomyopathy and cardiac interventions. 

She said: “I’m delighted to be joining the cardiology team at DWR at a very exciting time, supporting the recently-launched open-heart surgery service.

“We’re one of very few hospitals in the world to be able to offer this treatment, so being a part of this is a great challenge, both personally and professionally.”
