I was born in Africa, and perhaps because of that, I feel a great connection with people and animals. My parents, being veterinary surgeons, means I grew up surrounded by all sorts of pets. Caring for them was my first step toward becoming a vet.
Many years later I completed my degree in veterinary medicine in Lisbon. Soon after I went in to academia where I became a research fellow and then a Professor in a veterinary college. Research and education became, for a while, my passions. I lectured at several universities where I taught veterinary and medical students.
My research into subjects like Rabies and Malaria in Africa and South East Asia led me to do extensive travels where I managed to convert theoretic knowledge in practical benefits to local communities. Now I have joined the Vets4Pets team, where I am looking forward meeting all our clients and looking after their pets.
