Education: University of Marília, Brazil
I’ve wanted to be a veterinarian from a very young age. One of my earliest memories was wrapping stuffed animals with bandages as I was “casting” them because they had suffered a traumatic injury and were broken! Growing up in Brazil I had one rabbit (Tambor) for a few years. My family then moved to Ecuador where I had 7 hamsters (Bernardo, Bianca, Oliver, Susi, Chester, Titi, and Natasha). We then moved to Venezuela where I had two water turtles (Gucci and Totti) and took care of stray cats. Finally, I moved back to Brazil to pursue veterinary medicine, and that was when I rescued my current Dachshund dog as a puppy, Tulipa – she is absolutely the joy of my life!
I graduated in December 2008 and have been working as a veterinarian for the past 9 years with small animal general practice and surgery, both in Canada and Brazil. I started my career at a Surgery and Anesthesia residency program. Those were the most intense years of my life and I had found my passion within veterinary medicine: soft tissue surgery. After that, I went on to do further studies in internal medicine and held different jobs at clinics and emergency hospitals. Aside from surgeries, I really enjoy practicing preventative medicine as well as providing urgent care.
When I am not working, I enjoy going to the gym/swimming, watching TV series, playing the flute, solving puzzles and cooking/eating with my husband.
I am excited to be at Beechwood Animal Hospital and look forward to meeting your pets and helping them have the quality of life you wish for them.
