Pru grew up in Australia exposed to a wide range of exotic species. After qualifying as at veterinary surgeon at Sydney University, Pru moved over to the UK to continue her career. Two years in mixed practice in Kent were followed by an internship in Exotics at a referral centre in Swindon then she went back into general practice where she completed first a Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice in Zoological Medicine followed by Small Animal Surgery. In her spare time, Pru is a competitive triathlete, having completed an Ironman in 2018. Surrounded by animals and the countryside, she loves the sea and the outdoors, making Cornwall the perfect place for her to settle.
