At the age of 4, I started applying plasters to my broken stuffed animals and running around annoying my grandmother’s cats and my auntie’s mastiff. Aged 10, after reading James Herriot, I sternly decided that I wanted to be a vet.
In 1999 I graduated from Milano University, Italy, then I worked in Italy, France and I finally moved to the UK in 2007. I like being a general practitioner, with all the weird and wonderful cases that every day make me learn something new.
I love spending some of my time off volunteering in different parts of the world: over the years I have been to Romania, Belize, Mexico, Thailand and Nepal working with stray animals and educational projects.
