Oli graduated from Liverpool University 1999. He then moved to mid-Wales to the family sheep farm where he went into practice for 2 years in a beef and sheep mixed practice.
Oli subsequently returned to Liverpool University where he undertook a sheep certificate and then went on to run the University Farm animal practice and referral hospital.
After 5 years, he returned to Mid Wales and became a partner at Trefaldwyn Vets in Montgomery. This is a mixed practice but Oli predominately focuses on dairy, beef and sheep.
