Meet the team
Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon
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.
Isabel joined the team in 2022.

What's the best aspect of working at Filton Vets4Pets?
Having such a good team to work with
I joined Filton Vets4Pets in 2013 as an animal care assistant. A year later I enrolled as a student veterinary nurse at Hartpury College and qualified in November 2017. I enjoy all aspects of nursing but have a keen interest in pain management and emergency & critical care.
In my spare time I love walking my two miniature dachshunds Frieda and Hilda.
I joined Vets4Pets in 2017. I am training as a veterinary nurse and really enjoying it. I have a few pets of my own, a tortoise a Chihuahua and a horse. I spend most of my free time with my horse.
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 joined Filton Vets4Pets in March 2019 and became Head Receptionist in November 2020, since then I have become a Veterinary Care Assistant!
I attended Filton College where I completed level 3 in animal management. I am also qualified in dog grooming which I started learning when I was 15.
In my spare time I enjoy horse riding and long walks with my favourite companion Hugo - my French Bulldog.
I joined the reception team in 2018, having been a client for a long time before that, and then progressed to practice administrator. I have recently changed role and am now working as a veterinary care assistant.
I have a keen interest in all animals and at home I have my dog Diesel, cat Anderson and my bearded dragon Scratchy (yes, he originally had a mate called Itchy!).
I love long walks exploring the countryside with my best friend Diesel, my Jack Russell.
I joined Vets4Pets in February 2020 as a receptionist after having worked in a vet practice previously and travelled New Zealand in 2019.
I am currently attending SGS College where I am completing an Access to HE Science course, and hoping to go into Veterinary after this.
In my spare time I like to do photography and spend time with my Cockapoo Alfie.
I joined Filton Vets4Pets as a receptionist in October 2020.
I have always had a keen interest in animals. After attending the University of South Wales, I studied level 3 animal care and later went on to complete my veterinary nursing assistant higher national diploma.
In my spare time I enjoy running, art, gaming and long walks with my three Whippets Diesel, Jinx & Wilson.
I joined the team in 2020. Working in a veterinary practice is new to me at the moment. I studied Animal Care and Management at SGS College when I left school having always had an interest in and passion for animals. I have recently moved into my own home and am looking forward to finding a dog to call my own. In my spare time I enjoy travel, exploring and exercising.
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.
Katherine joined the team in 2022.
