Vet student makes CBEEBIES big time

Bugs and little beasties will feature in a new TV series fronted by third year Vet School student Jess French. With TV credits such as Springwatch to her name Jess is no stranger to broadcasting but this is the first TV series of her own.

‘Minibeast Adventure with Jess’ will prove you don’t have to go all the way to Africa to have an interesting animal encounter. Jess explores the amazing creatures that live right on our doorstep.

Back home now revising for her exams Jess said: “I still want to be a vet but who knows where this may lead.  I’m just taking every day a step at a time right now and enjoying being a part of the movement to get kids outdoors and caring about the environment – if I could do that and be a vet in my spare time, that would be ideal!”

Dr Karen Braithwaite, Director of Academic Support and Administration at Nottingham’s Veterinary School, said: “We are very proud of Jess – this is a fantastic opportunity for her.  She is great veterinary student and an asset to the School.  It’s terrific that Jess can share her love and knowledge of animals with the next generation.”
