I am originally from Italy, where I studied at the University of Bologna before moving to the UK. I started working in a busy charity and then joined the Medivet family at Watford. I have always loved surgery, and achieved a Postgraduate certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2015 and an Advanced PG Certificate in Orthopaedic surgery in 2019. Outside work I love travelling and sports in general such as climbing and kayaking. I also have a very sweet cat at home called Marcella, and a very cheeky dog called Bruno.

I qualified from Liverpool University in 2007 and went on to gain my Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice in Small Animal Medicine in 2014. I am one of the main consulting vets in Watford but also perform a lot of ultrasounds and imaging. I really enjoy talking to owners and helping their pets when they come for a heath check or if they're poorly. I know personally how much our pets are part of the family; my children and I dote on our two rehomed stray cats, Sebastian and Pulga.

Took my dog to the practice on Saturday evening due to him swallowing a squeaker from a toy. Unfortunately they had to make him vomit which was successful in removing the squeaker. The care from the receptionist to the vet was excellent. Unfortunately we all know that there are huge costs involved in visiting a vets out of hours but it’s still a comfort knowing that there is help 24 hours a day if needed and if you have insurance some of these costs can be recovered. Thank you Medivet for being there when we needed you

My cat Star was sick, not eating or drinking. Medivet were able to see her within 2 hours of me calling. She had an intestinal blockage that was picked up on a scan, needed an op to remove. She was an inpatient from Monday to Friday. We were kept fully informed daily (numerous times) on her condition. We were given a nice quiet room to visit her post op and were able to spend an hour with her. All staff were polite kind, helpful and friendly. I felt Star was cared for well and has made a purrfect recovery.
