I joined the team in 2020 and have had a keen interest in animals from an early age. I studied a degree in Zoology in 2006 and worked for 2 years as a geneticist before studying a Masters in wild animal biology in London. I then embarked on my veterinary degree and completed in 2014.  Before joining the team I worked for a private practice in North Somerset. 

In my private time I enjoy travelling, DIY and learning new skills and am a fan of visiting historical sites with my partner and Ozzy the dog.

I’m originally from Turin in the north-west of Italy. This is where I qualified as a vet after studying at the university of Turin. After graduating I worked in a 24 hr vet clinic for small animals in the emergency room. Over time I started working on surgeries and abdominal ultrasounds. I worked in Italy for 5 years before moving to Bristol in October 2017. I joined the practice in the same month and am really enjoying my time here. I am a big cat person and have three cats myself.”

I graduated in Romania in 2012 and have been working with small animals since. I moved to the UK in 2016 and worked with large animals for 2 years and decided to return to working with small animals. I joined Filton Vets4Pets in 2019.

I currently don't have any pets but would like to own a cat one day. In my free time I like travelling and fixing up cars.

I joined the Vets4Pets team in November 2020 as a Student Veterinary Nurse towards the end of my training. I have since qualified and I am now a RVN with the practice. I am hoping to further my knowledge in Canine Psychology and Behaviour, and also Exotics. 
I have a huge passion for animals and have had many different species as pets, from dogs to chinchillas and reptiles to mantis. I currently have a Staffordshire Bull Terrier x French Bulldog named Loki, and 4 Tarantulas named Nigel, Doris, Irene and Gladys.
Outside of work I enjoy music, especially attending live music events. I enjoy playing bass guitar. I also enjoy cooking, drawing and spending time with friends.

I joined the Vets4Pets team in September 2020.  I have previously worked in radiotherapy, treating cancer patients for the last 10 years.  I have always loved animals and grew up surrounded by pets.  After completing voluntary work at an animal shelter and other veterinary practices I decided to make the move to work with animals.

I am enjoying the course so far and look forward to completing my training and becoming a registered veterinary nurse.

Outside of work I enjoy running, yoga, travelling and spending time with friends and family.

I joined Vets4Pets in 2012 on the reception team and have gradually moved into the administration side of the practice - however I still enjoy seeing our clients for a chat at the desk! 

I have a miniature Schnauzer called Devon, a standard Poodle called Jax, a Ragdoll cat called Benedict and a bearded dragon called Drogo.

The best aspect of working at Vets4Pets is meeting a diverse range of clients and their pets and being able to help them in some way.

I recently joined the Vets4Pets team - although I work on the administration side of things, seeing everyone's pets is always a bonus! 

I moved to the UK in 2019, so unfortunately I don't have a pet over here, but back home I have a black Lab, Jet. He loves a good swim, and is a very good diver for a dog!

I recently joined Filton Vets4Pets in 2021, having started here on placement for a Level 2 Animal Care course. I was so impressed by the compassionate staff that I knew I had to stay! I'm hoping to one day either move over to Veterinary Care Assistant or start a Veterinary Nursing Apprenticeship. 

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my pets - obviously! Balthazar, a Syrian hamster, and Lucy, who's a cross-breed rescue dog. I also enjoy playing video games, reading and writing.
