I graduated from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Greece in 2012. After a brief start in a first opinion practice I undertook a two year surgical rotating internship at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of AUTH. At that point I had the opportunity to visit several well recognized referral centers and see practice with board-certified veterinary ophthalmologists in USA (University of Florida) and Italy. After the end of my internship I returned to primary care working as a veterinary surgeon at a busy practice in Athens and by the end of that year I submitted and presented my thesis gaining my Master's degree. My focus has always been on veterinary ophthalmology. In 2015, I moved to the UK to work as an intern in Ophthalmology at Optivet Referrals under the supervision of Robert Lowe (RCVS Specialist in Veterinary Ophthalmology) and Natalia Escanilla Medina (ECVO Diplomate). I am now training, to become a specialist, as an ophthalmology resident at Optivet Referrals.
