She has supervised to completion 6 post graduate specialist Diploma students (ECVAA), 1 PhD student and 1 Masters student, and is currently training four veterinary anaesthetists to reach specialist status. She was assistant editor of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia from 2003 to 2005 and acts as peer reviewer to several veterinary journals. She has acted as an examiner for the Diploma of the European College of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia since 2004 and as Chief Examiner from 2011.  She has also sat on examination panels for both internal and external PhD theses.
