Joanna Evans graduated as a veterinary surgeon from Bristol University in 2008. She lives in the Towy Valley, Carmarthenshire with her husband, a farm animal vet, and her daughter Gwenllian. Together they have two rescue dogs, two rescue cats and a flock of sheep. She has had an interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine and specifically acupuncture since she shadowed a veterinary acupuncturist during her student years. She attended her training course with the Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists in 2012 and since then had been a keen advocate of this holistic, drug-free technique alongside her ‘day-job’ in a rescue centre in West Wales. In 2015 she established her own veterinary acupuncture service covering the Carmarthenshire area. Her vision is to offer a unique home-based service using this long-established treatment method, allowing animals to be seen in the comfort of their own surroundings.
