Dr Jess Dicks (South African)
Jess was raised in South Africa and studied her first year BSc at Rand Afrikaans University then went on to Onderstepoort. She worked in South Africa in a sports horse/repro practice for two years, after which she did a spell in the UK performing locums with similar practices.
Jess returned to South Africa to join Baker McVeigh Summerveld in 2009. She fulfilled the duties of senior racing and repro vet, servicing many of their top yards. In her own words she describes her passions; “I am an adventurer at heart and love to travel, I mostly love the mountains and rivers. The crazier the trip the better!"
