“I believe that each animal is a soul that deserves to be honored. When I look into an animal’s eyes, I see a being that longs to be nourished, listened, and cared for. Attending to their particular needs and characteristics we become better humans”.
I was lucky to be born into a family of animal lovers. I’ve had animals from the day I was born and throughout my childhood in Brazil. It was only a natural course for me to be also involved with animals professionally.
I joined Longwood Veterinary Clinic in 2001. Beginning as a Pet Care Specialist, I gained hands-on experience to supplement my Animal Technology schooling. From there, I’ve become a technician, and later on Head Technician.
My latest position is in Marketing. Developing the monthly newsletter and linking Longwood Veterinary Clinic to many Social Media channels, we strive to bring a deeper connection between our clinic and our families.
In my personal life, my husband and I have one son, Petrus, who is living in Alaska and serving in the Army as a paratrooper; 8 cats (Fezz, Dr. Parnassus, Mitsu, Tesla Maria Broomhilda, Digory, Rumi Khalil Watts, Buckaroo Bonzai Volts, and Unagi); and Stefano, a Bearded Dragon. If I manage to have some free time, it would be spent reading, rehearsing for theatrical plays, crafting, scrapbooking or researching my family’s genealogy.
