Rosie joined the SMART team in the Summer of 2021 after completing her BSc Veterinary Physiotherapy degree at Harper Adams University, including placements at the SMART Clinic, Animal Health Trust, Physio-Vet and Ashbrook Equine Hospital. Her dissertation investigated the impact of agility hurdle jump height on the landing forces experienced by Large and Intermediate agility dogs.
Rosie grew up at a Boarding Kennels and Cattery along with volunteering for the (then) Retired Greyhound Trust and took over the Leicestershire branch of the Greyhound Trust in 2017 when it was faced with closure.
Rosie has always had working gundogs (Golden Retrievers, Cocker and Springer Spaniels), competing with them at Working Tests, along with Showing and Obedience. Rosie began Agility training in 2017 with her Springer Spaniel Lewie, but has never quite made it to a show! Something she hopes to correct soon.
In her spare time Rosie has played cricket for over 20 years and hopes to find a new team to play for in Wales.
