Georgia

Veterinary Surgeon

Read Georgia bio

My name is Georgia and I am from Athens, Greece. I graduated from the University of Forestry, Sofia in 2018. I started working in the UK the same year.

My passion in the veterinary field lies in neurology and soft tissue surgery but also in the everyday consultations with my patients and their owners.

I decided that I want to be a vet at the age of 14 when my family got our first dog, Pares.

In my free time I like painting, sketching and reading. When possible, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family back in Athens. I have a gorgeous cocker spaniel name Lilly.

I am a Veterinary Surgeon from Greece. I graduated in May 2018 from the English Department of Veterinary Medicine University of Forestry in Sofia, Bulgaria. I have always wanted to be a Veterinary Surgeon as I grew up with a lot of Birds of Prey as my dad is a Falcon Breeder back in Greece.

I am currently completing my MSc in Health Management. My main interests are soft tissue surgery, avian medicine and surgery but I also really enjoy consulting.

In my spare time I enjoy going paragliding, travelling and exploring, and of course visiting my family back home in Greece.
