After graduating from University College Dublin in 1998 with a degree in Veterinary Medicine, Natasha worked in Australia and the UK, where she developed a keen interest in ophthalmology. She obtained the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons’ (RCVS) Certificate in Veterinary Ophthalmology in 2004. She later joined the Eye Veterinary Clinic in Herefordshire where she completed an alternative residency programme for the RCVS Diploma in Veterinary Ophthalmology which she obtained in 2011. During that time she was commuting to Limerick where she started her own ophthalmology service called Eye Vet, and she joined Crescent Veterinary Clinic in 2008.
She is a Veterinary Council of Ireland recognised specialist in Veterinary Ophthalmology. She has published journal articles and textbook chapters, as well as creating education apps in veterinary ophthalmology. She is an editorial board member for Companion Animal Journal, a regular reviewer for Veterinary Ophthalmology journal, and a committee member of the British Association of Veterinary Ophthalmologists.
Natasha is an official panelist for the BVA/KC/ISDS eye testing in breeding dogs.
