Janine graduated from the University of Liverpool in June 2004 and worked in small animal practice for 18 months after graduation followed by a further 18 months travelling overseas and practicing in Melbourne, Australia. Janine Returned to the UK in early 2006 and went back into practice where her interest in Internal Medicine grew. In August 2008 she began a 1 year rotating internship at Rutland House Referrals, Merseyside followed by a residency at University of Glasgow as Senior Clinical Training Scholar in Small Animal Internal Medicine. During this time, Janine gained expertise in all aspects of Internal Medicine as well as experience working in a busy Oncology Department.
