The Face of 2014 - Emma-Louise Bates

The Face of 2014

2014 is our second year of sponsorship at Harper Adams University and it gave us great pleasure to present Emma-Louise Bates with this prestigious award for 'Best Student on BSc Veterinary Nursing and Practice Management course' at Harper Adams University on Friday 19th September.

Emma-Louise started at Harper Adams in 2010, studying BSc Veterinary Nursing and Practice Management, the facilities and lecturers at Harper make it a fantastic place to study especially with the incorporation of large animal management widening her knowledge range.

Whilst on placement in a veterinary practice Emma- Louise was astonished by the number of overweight dogs she saw and how many of the owners were unaware that their pet was overweight. She decided to review this for her dissertation using the title "Does client compliance and education affect weight loss in overweight and obese canines?". Unfortunately due to time constraints, the results obtained were not as she had hoped, however she is pleased that she has provided a framework for future studies in this area.

During her final year, she started looking for jobs in the West Midlands area and stumbled across a job at Townsend Veterinary Practice in Bromsgrove, where she is now employed as a full-time registered nurse and has been working there for the last three months.

Emma-Louse commented, 'I feel Harper Adams helped immensely by giving me the knowledge and confidence to become the veterinary nurse I am today'.
