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.

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 daughter and I dote on our two rehomed stray cats, Sebastian and Pulga.

A trip from Central London to this emergency vet in Hertfordshire was worth every mile we had to travel. The staff, including Dr Leonie, was amazing. My cat has used up one of her nine lives, surviving a vicious bite from another moggy, thanks to the help of the Medivet team. Thank you so much and if she ever needs treatment again we're prepared to go the extra miles.

I really cannot recommend this veterinary survey enough. I was apprehensive because you hear so often that you don’t get a great level of service at big chain vets but this was the total opposite of that. They’ve seen my winter white hamster 3 times over the last 7 days and each time the every single member of staff I’ve encountered has been been fabulous. Everyone is kind, caring and clearly has a passion for the job they do. The reception team are always interested to come and make friends with your pets and the vets are so thorough and knowledgeable in what they do. They all made what I thought was going to be a highly stressful experience such a breeze. Thank you for caring for Ralph and nursing him back to health! We’ll both be eternally grateful to the whole team at Medivet Watford.

Because we had seen our local vet " Hackney Vet" and were not convinced by them. We were concerned after seeing our puppies Cherry Eye that we hadn't sought the car he needed. We called you and you were able to see us the next day and by the end of the week deliver his eye surgery. Following our vet who had given us the wrong eye drop medication and not able to see our puppy for a further week. Plus you were speedy, efficient, kind and communicative - impeccable service!
