Jill - The Animal Lady
From a very young age I was fascinated by animals, collecting frogs and toads or taking home any waif or stray I came across. We had the usual assortment of domestic pets that were frequently joined by injured wildlife that I nursed back to health in my bedroom, much to my Mothers disgust!! After university in London I returned to the Midlands, taking up a position as a trainee keeper at a local Zoo, from there what was a fascination became a passion.
For as long as I can remember, I have always had a love of animals. Having kept a wide range of pets as a boy, I have always had a Hands-On experience with Animals. When I joined the team eight years ago, I was promised never a dull minute and since that day no two days have ever been the same. I now live and breathe Animals for they are a major part of my life. Hand rearing has now become second nature to me and I never complain about the two hourly feeds that are sometimes required during the middle of the night!!
