Biography

I qualified cum laude from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Sassari in 1999, with a thesis by the title "Seminoma in the horse".
After a period of a couple of years between private practice in small animals and a 8 month scholarship to work in the large animal hospital at the University Veterinary Hospital in Dublin, in 2002 got awarded the Residency in diagnostic imaging at the University Veterinary Hospital in Dublin.
In 2005 I was awarded the Certificate in Veterinary diagnostic imaging from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons .
In 2006 I was awarded the Diploma in Veterinary diagnostic imaging from the European College of veterinary diagnostic imaging and I was also appointed as temporary college lecturer at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Dublin.
In January 2007 I was appointed as permanent college lecturer at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Dublin.

I am regularly involved in charity fund raising campaigns with Bothar and Oxfam.
I have run twice the Dublin women's mini marathon sponsoring Children in Hospital
Ireland.
With my husband we sponsor Bramuel, a child in
Uganda with World Vision.
I like music, interior design and all types of animals, but my biggest passions are my sons Iker and Sean.
