Caroline graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2006 and moved to Devon, where she spent 11 years working in both mixed and small animal practice, first as a permanent full time vet, then as a locum mainly focusing on farm animal work.

She joined APHA in July 2017 as a Senior Veterinary Inspector (SVI) based in Exeter, where her main areas of responsibility focused on bovine TB control and animal welfare. In August 2018, Caroline moved back to her native Scotland, transferring to the Perth APHA office where she continued to work as an SVI, gaining experience in a wider range of government veterinary work. Caroline developed an interest in exotic disease and was lead exotics vet for APHA Scotland, during which time she was heavily involved in the 2020/2021 avian influenza outbreak. In April 2021, she moved to her current role within APHA as a Veterinary Advisor in the Veterinary Exotic Notifiable Disease Unit (VENDU), which gives advice to field vets, policymakers and stakeholders on exotic disease. In this role, she is lead vet for anthrax, Brucellosis and rabies.
