We’d like to catch the opportunity to thank our volunteers James, Huw and Aimee for their great support and their big enthusiasm in veterinary work and spending time in Carriacou in general.
We are happy to have them with us for another week and would like to share some insights about them.
Dr. James and Dr. Huw are both registered members of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (MRCVS) in the UK.
Dr. James Barton from Hurst, Berkshire, in the UK, did a Bachelor degree in Bioveterinary Science before he started his studies in Veterinary Science. He graduated with distinction from the University of Liverpool in July 2015. He has since worked in two different first opinion small animal and exotics practices. James enjoys conservation work and has previously volunteered in the capture and movement of wild game in the Limpopo province of South Africa.
Dr. Huw Fletcher currently living in North Yorkshire, did a Bachelor degree in Bioveterinary Science and added a Master in Veterinary Parasitology on top of that. His Master thesis was about a diagnostic test for bovine neosporosis. Huw also studied Veterinary Science at the University of Liverpool and graduated with distinction in July 2015. For the last two years, Huw has been working in a mixed practice in Knaresborough.
Huw’s partner Aimee studied History at the University of Manchester and graduated in 2008. She’s a teacher and works for Teach First. At CAH she’s stepped into animal care and welfare, and is a very supportive member of the team and by helping out, wether it is packing up surgery kits, holding patients or cleaning up after the boys.
After their time in Carriacou, Huw and Aimee are off to the next adventure in New Zealand, where they are hoping to work and live, soon!
