Alexis joined the ABEC ambulatory team in 2015. She grew up in South Africa and graduated from the Royal (Dick) Vet School of Veterinary Studies, Edinburgh University. Alexis started her veterinary career in the UK with completing an equine internship and then going on to work in both first opinion and referral equine practice. While enjoying a variety of equine work and having a wide range of skills in and out of the clinic, her areas of interest are dentistry, lameness, anaesthesia, and emergency medicine. Alexis is a qualified Equine Dental Technician and she has also recently completed a masters level Certificate in Advanced Equine Practice through Liverpool University, with a focus on equine dentistry.
Alexis is a keen amateur showjumper, but is currently taking a break from riding to raise her young family, which keeps her pretty busy when she is not working.
