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.

I’ve been with Medivet over 25 years, I started with Guy Carter, whom in my eyes is a passionate, caring, loyal - dedicated vet; that goes that extra mile to help and save animals. My Staffie was hit by a train, she was at deaths door, Guy & his staff went to work and after 12 operations my dog is still here 8 years later. Now that’s dedication! I find Medivet staff to be the same all these years later, professional, caring, passionate and still going that extra mile. Lucy Nesbitt

Firstly, all the staff at the Watford branch are ALWAYS so helpful and friendly, and very understanding when talking over the phone and in the clinic. They collect your pet from your car and deliver them back (even if it's pouring rain!), and offer a payment link so you don't have to go inside at all. There's also now a covered outside waiting area. Only neg is that the parking can be slightly chaotic sometimes
