Claudia graduated from the University of Bristol in 1995, and worked in first opinion practice in both farm animal and small animal practices for nine years. During this period she gained her RCVS Certificate in Veterinary Ophthalmology, which tempted her into a residency at the Animal Health Trust (AHT) in 2004. She gained her European Diploma in Veterinary Ophthalmology in 2007. Claudia became head of the AHT unit of Comparative Veterinary Ophthalmology in 2009, and then moved to Davies Veterinary Specialists in 2015.
