Amanda started working for Mildmay in October 2015. She recently moved here from Edinburgh where she also worked in a veterinary practice for two years, before that she studied animal care at Oatridge Agricultural College.

Amanda has owned a variety of animals and currently has two dogs Keira, a Jack Russell cross Poodle, and Hamish a Boerboel.

In 2011 she travelled to South Africa to learn about wildlife conservation, there she was able to get hands on with big cats such as cheetahs and lions that were being treated by the reserve. They also help many of the orphan rhinos in the area affected by poaching, so a few night shifts keeping them company was in order.

In her free time Amanda takes part in a cheerleading team who compete across the country and have won several trophies.
