Working at Agria has very much been a return to Alice’s roots in a number of ways. Career-wise, she started work in the small-animal veterinary world in 2014, including a stint running her own business. However, Alice’s professional life began at Denplan, where she first crossed paths with her now-colleagues here at Agria, Janet Hughes and Nick White. “Agria feels like coming home!” she says.
Alice grew up on a farm in rural Herefordshire, and her life has always revolved around animals but horses have never ceased to be her primary passion. “They made a very early entrance into my life and, much to my father’s disappointment, have never left,” reveals Alice. “There is a rumour that, as a small child, I used to go to bed in my riding gear, boots and all, in order to be ready for a full day of equine excitement.”
She is now located in the beautiful Sherwood Forest where she lives with her two dun Connemara ponies, Rex and Bailey, who she describes as “a comedy double act, and the ponies I dreamt of owning as a child”.
