Sabrina Tracey

BSc Animal Management student hopes to work with assistance dogs

Animal lover Sabrina Tracey would like to use her degree to work with dogs that assist blind and disabled people.
 
Sabrina, from Denby, is currently in the final year of a BSc course in Animal Management at Broomfield Hall.
 
After taking levels 1 and 2 in Animal Care at Derby College when she first left school, she worked in an unrelated sector, but never gave up on her original career goal.
 
Encouraged by a friend, Sabrina went to an open day at Broomfield Hall, where she enquired about the BSc course and successfully applied for a place.
 
She said: “I like the way are lecturers push us to do our best but in other ways they aren’t too strict with us and are understanding. I’m not very academic and wasn’t sure if I’d be able to go on the BSc course because I didn’t have maths. It was OK though as one of our lecturers, Stacey, arranged for me and another girl to go to the Roundhouse once a week to do maths so we’d have the qualifications we needed.”
 
Sabrina, who has a lurcher, a Jack Russel and a pony, Benjy, definitely wants to work with dogs after she’s graduated.  
 
She added: “I love horses but they’re my hobby so I don’t want them to be my job. What I’d like most is to work with dogs that assist people with disabilities. I’ve always wanted to do a job that involves helping people and I’ve recently done some volunteering with a guide dog charity in Nottingham.”
