Danielle Marcus BSc, MSc Hons
I first joined the Oundle practice in 2001 as a school work experience student. Having completed work experience I was offered the position as Saturday girl and often worked during the school holidays. In 2005 I went to study for 3 years for my first degree in Bioveterinary Sciences at the Royal Vet College London. I thoroughly enjoyed my degree and whilst studying decided a career in scientific research was what I wanted. After graduating with a Bachelor of Sciences degree I was lucky enough to be offered a job as a research assistant for a cancer drug company in Cambridge and spent 3 years helping to develop new cancer drugs for people.
In 2011 I decided it was time for a change I missed meeting new people and wanted to start interacting with animals again so I left the ever changing world of science and accepted a full time role at the Thrapston Surgery. I really enjoy my role at the Thrapston surgery especially meeting all our lovely clients and their pets in addition I really enjoy helping to develop and maintain our online presence and have learnt a great deal about website development since joining the practice and am really excited about the future of our online business.
I have also just gained a Masters Degree in McTimoney Animal Therapy after 3 long years of studying alongside my full time job. I’m currently very busy in my spare time trying to build a business using my McTimoney Therapy for both horses and dogs experiencing musculoskeletal problems.
When I am not busy working I have 2 horses loa and Mango whom I ride regularly and aim to start competing Lola later this year.. I also have 2 dogs Lewi and Pepsi both can often be seen at the Thrapston Surgery behind reception trying to help. Lewi and I attend weekly agility lessons and hope to one day attempt a competiton. I spend any remaining spare time baking cakes and bringing these into work for everybody to try and love trying new recipes and ideas.
