Helen Evans – Sliding doors: A life well lived


An interview with Helen Evans on embracing life in all directions by Fiona Farmer BVSc MRCVS.

Helen Evans thought she was going to be a vet, but instead, a degree in biological sciences with an all-important sandwich year in industry was the path she took. It led to a lifelong career working in veterinary laboratories, and Helen has been the laboratory manager at NationWide Specialist Laboratories in Cambridge for over 20 years.
