Melanie qualified from Bristol University in 2004, having intercalated a degree in Veterinary Pathology at the RVC in 2002. Following a 13-month rotating small animal internship at the AHT, she completed her PhD in molecular immunology at the Institute for Animal Health, Compton, and the University of Cambridge in 2009.
Melanie then spent a year as an anatomic pathology resident at Glasgow University before joining Finn Pathologists, Norfolk in 2012, where she continued training as an anatomic pathologist in conjunction with a part-time residency at the RVC. She became a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists in 2014, and is now head of the histopathology team at Finn Pathologists, as well as an honorary lecturer in anatomic pathology at the RVC.
In 2016 Melanie became a RCVS-recognised specialist in veterinary pathology (small animals). She has particular interest in feline pathology and medicine, and completed the distance education course in feline medicine (2017), one of the first pathologists to ever undertake this course.
Melanie has ongoing collaborations with the RVC and the University of Edinburgh, as well as being an active member of the British Society of Veterinary Pathology and a trustee for the British College of Veterinary Specialists.
