I was born in Malta in 1964, as my father was stationed there with the Royal Navy. My schooling was at a weekly boarding school in Dorchester and then I completed my education at a local college in Somerset.

My working career started in the Royal Navy at the age of 18 years with various drafts throughout the country. After nine years of service I then moved on to work for the Health Authorities in Cornwall. I moved to Taunton in 1999 and starting working for the local Council until 2008 when I set up Gone To The Dogs.

The change in career direction was because I had two epileptic dogs that were my world and needed extra care and attention and I felt there was an opening in the market to offer a home from home dog care service.

I still live in Taunton with my lovely dog Holly a Cocker Spaniel.
