I graduated as a Veterinary surgeon from Cambridge in 2010 and have worked for Swayne and Partners in Suffolk before joining the Vets4Pets team in 2013 initially as an assistant and then as Joint Venture Partner. I was born in Italy but have now spent twelve years in Cambridge. I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine but especially surgery and dentistry and I am currently studying for a Post-Graduate Certificate in Small Animal Surgery which will allow us to expand on the already extensive range of surgeries that we can offer within the practice She has two dogs, Fabio and Sybil, who like to help out (or hinder!) reception. In my spare time I enjoys running and reading a good book, as well as taking the dogs on muddy walks on Holkham beach.

I am Joint Venture Partner of Vets4Pets Cambridge Barnwell Road and Cambridge Beehive. I grew up in Guildford, Surrey and qualified from Cambridge University in 2008. I went on to work at a small animal practice in Reading. From there I moved to Cork in Ireland where I worked at a small animal hospital with a high case load of emergencies and traumas which is where my passion for emergency and critical care developed, with a particular interest in soft tissue surgery.I have taken over the laparoscopic surgeries in the practice and I have an advanced qualification in Endoscopy and Endosurgery. This means in addition to our very popular Laparoscopic (Keyhole) spaying I am now able to offer a range of surgeries by keyhole including gastropexies, abdominal organ biopsies, intestinal foreign removal, bladder stone removals and more. Keyhole is the gold standard for most human surgeries so I am very excited to be able to offer this to our furry patients now. I moved back to Cambridge in 2012 when I started with Vets4Pets. After a brief break to have my daughter, Evie, I returned as Joint Venture Partner in 2015 for both our Practices. My free time is taken up looking after my two labradoodles Humphrey and Cass. I am so excited about getting to work with our fantastic team again and look forward to seeing all our lovely patients soon!

I have been nursing since 2007 and qualified as an RVN in 2009. I have worked in a mixture of small animal and mixed practices across the British Isles, from large veterinary hospitals to small practices. I hold certificates in Veterinary Nursing of Exotic Species and Emergency and Critical Care. I have also co-authored part of a veterinary nursing textbook on exotic pets and wildlife.

I am passionate about our native wildlife, and being involved with wildlife rescue and rehabilitation led to the start of my career in veterinary nursing. Preventative healthcare and welfare of pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs and birds is something I am keen to educate pet owners about. I also have a keen interest in anaesthesia and pain management.

I’ve been at the practice since 2010. I really enjoy my job as I love reception work and I adore animals. As the first point of contact, it’s lovely to be able to welcome clients to the practice and meet their furry companions. Having been here so long I have got to know the regular faces and its lovely to be able to share in their joy when their pets are doing well. Some days can be challenging so I’m lucky to work along a hardworking and fun team.
