Claire gave a talk with slides on "A woman's View as a Vet". After qualifying at Edinburgh College, she began working a a farm vet. She later joined Millcroft Vets at their Brigham practice before going on to their Cockermouth practice, where there are now six vets, recently joined by the John Sedgewick practice.

They treat animals and wildlife from the exotic to everyday animals.
