Hope has had a passion for working with animals from a very young age, having lived on a farm with a range of animals and grown up with dogs and horses.

She completed her Integrated Masters in Veterinary Physiotherapy at Writtle University College in June 2018, and at the time worked as a veterinary physiotherapist in Stow Veterinary Group. She started working one day per week in a lecturing role at Writtle, and has since become a full-time senior lecturer on the Veterinary Physiotherapy team. Hope has also achieved a Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education, enhancing her pedagogical skills.

Currently, Hope is a member of RAMP (Register of Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners), which she considers to be an important part of her lecturing career, as it clarifies the standard of professionalism of musculoskeletal care given to animals and ensures that her continuing professional development record is up to date.

In her spare time, Hope is a practising clinician who travels home to Ireland for one weekend a month to treat. She feels it's important to continue her professional development; keep up to date with research, conditions and medical interventions; and develop a professional network. It also means she can refer to and discuss experiences with students at Writtle.
