After a varied career working both as a herdsman 'tending 400 goats' and a vet nurse in her native Oslo, 'animal lover' Trude decided to move to England and apply to the Bristol Vet School. A year ago she joined fellow Norwegian, Maria Lowe, in setting up and running a new practice in Bristol called Viking Vets. Trude has recently become engaged to fitness enthusiast Howard Thomas whom she met whilst training for the Bath half marathon. They are hoping to get married in 2003.
