Frankie goes to Somerset

15th June 2018

Frankie Connelly is NMR’s new area field manager in Somerset. Managing a team of recorders, she is responsible for the operation of milk recording and disease testing services for producers, advisers and vets.

 Working with animals was Frankie’s childhood ambition, but it has come in several guises. Keen to pursue a career as a dog handler in the police force, she volunteered for, and became, Hampshire Constabulary’s youngest warranted special constable at 18 years old.

 An interesting interlude, in her early 20s, was in airside security officer at London Heathrow Airport, providing security services to statesmen, religious leaders, royal families and celebrities.

 Frankie then returned to working with livestock, as a nursing assistant at a veterinary practice and then as herdswomen in several dairy units. She joined NMR in spring 2018.
