Violaine graduated from Liege University (Belgium) in 2007. She has been working with exotic species since graduation in different countries: UK (London, Wales and Hampshire) and Dubai.
She has several qualifications in zoological medicine: a master degree from RVC/ZSL since 2008, CertAVP in zoological medicine since 2015 and an Advanced Practitioner in Zoological Medicine since 2016 both from the British Royal Veterinary College.
For the past 2.5 years, she has been working as a full-time exotic vet, seeing first opinion and referral cases.
She enjoys working with all exotic species but has a special interest in reptiles (especially lizards). She has a soft spot for bearded dragons ;-) .
