To celebrate LGBT History Month, throughout February we are featuring Q&As with some key role models. Victoria Nielsen, Lead Internal Quality Assurer at Medivet Training College, shares her experience of the veterinary profession and encourages others to embrace who they are.
The most obvious career path for veterinary graduates is practice, but there are a number of other options available. Stacey Blease, AWF trustee, tells us about her journey to becoming Head of Learning and Development at the British Veterinary Nursing Association.
This Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month, Robin Hargreaves reflects on veterinary nurses' expertise and dedication, acknowledging their growing role in the veterinary team, as well as their contribution to the quality of veterinary service.

For the last 7 years I have interacted with vets all day and every day. But never as an animal owner, and almost always from behind my desk in the media and policy offices at BVA HQ.

Over the past few months, I’ve had the opportunity to gain a real insight into our members’ work, and the bond they have with animals, through the huge selection of images that were entered into our inaugural photo competition.
Since the results of the EU referendum were announced in the early hours of Friday I’m sure, like me, many of you have been thinking about what Brexit will mean in reality, including what it will mean for our profession.
