Elli Verrocchi is a second-year veterinary student at The Royal Veterinary College in London, England. She is originally from Melbourne, Australia, where she completed her BSc in Zoology at Monash University (2018). She has worked and volunteered within the veterinary/animal-shelter sector for more than five years as a veterinary nurse/assistant. It is there she discovered she wanted to become a vet. Verrocchi has a passion for all things wildlife, ECC, and small animal/shelter medicine. She is keeping her options open for a variety of specialties upon graduating. Outside of studying, you will find her playing soccer (or football, depending where you are from) with her RVCWFC team, drawing a Disney cartoon for a friend, or travelling across the world to spend time with her family down-under.
