Msci MRCVS

I graduated in Portugal and moved to the UK soon after to practice as a small animal veterinary surgeon. Since then, I have worked in several clinical settings, including first-opinion practices, out-of-hours providers, referral services, shelters and telemedicine. I enjoy all aspects my job as a vet but the ability to make a positive difference in both pets and people's lives is what motivates me to get out of bed every morning and continue doing what I do!
When not working, I can be found exploring the world or doing some form of physical activity, hiking and playing tennis being my favourites!
