Valentina graduated in veterinary medicine from the University of Turin, Italy, in 2007 and worked in mixed and farm animal practices for 3 years, before undertaking a farm animal residency and obtaining the Diploma for the European College of Small Ruminant Health Management in 2014. She subsequently completed a mechanical engineering PhD program jointly between Moredun and Heriot-Watt University. She is a European recognised specialist in small ruminant medicine and has worked as a senior clinician in disease investigation at the University of Glasgow. She is now a veterinary consultant and has joined the European Commission for the Control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease (EuFMD) as capacity development and learning specialist.
