I graduated from the University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences in Brno, Czech Republic, where I also obtained my PhD. After I moved to the UK, I spent a few years gaining surgical and medical experience working for small animal charities and private primary care as well as referral veterinary practices. My passion for ophthalmology led me to undertake a general rotating internship and an ophthalmology internship at the Animal Health Trust in Newmarket before I embarked on a 3-year ophthalmology residency programme. I joined the ophthalmology team at Dick White Referrals in April 2017 to continue my specialist ophthalmology training. Recently, I successfully completed the BSAVA Postgraduate Certificate in Small Animal Ophthalmology. In my free time I enjoy walking my cute little dog called Jaba, dancing, acting in amateur theatre, playing the flute, and hiking.
