Gilla qualified from Bristol in 1997. Her study included an exchange term in Germany. Family links encouraged Gilla to stay in the beautiful South West of England, working initially as a mixed animal practitioner and now concentrating on small animals. She has a particular interest in ophthalmology, feline medicine and poultry.
Outside of work Gilla enjoys the outdoors life either helping on the family farm with her husband, two children and their menagerie, or being active cycling, swimming and running.
