Alex received her BVSc from the University of Liverpool in 2008. During her veterinary studies she developed an interest in pathology and undertook an intercalated degree in Veterinary Pathology at the Royal Veterinary College. Following graduation she worked in practice for 2 years, first in mixed practice in the UK and then specialist equine practice in Australia, before returning to the University of Liverpool to begin a pathology residency.
