About me:

I come from a musical family, so singing and music play an important role in my life. Also, I enjoy working out, cooking and traveling. I love animals and especially dogs.


After 10 years in research, I decided to focus on Marine Conservation Program Management. I joined MEDASSET in order to contribute with my knowledge to the protection of sea turtles and their habitats, while I aim to develop my personal skills.
