I joined the IVAH team in October 2016 soon after completing the Veterinary Assistant Certification Program in Kingston, Ontario. That was the final twist of a long and eclectic working history. I am from Spain. I completed my degree in Psychology in Barcelona, which allowed me to discover my passion for research in the animal behaviour field. Life, however took me to play roles as diverse as quality control supervisor in the animation film industry in Mainland China, writer for children animation series in Hong Kong, peer counselor for survivors of domestic violence in Toronto, and consultant in the International Trade industry between Asia and South America. Having the opportunity of working with animals again, I feel I have come back to the field where I belong. I am delighted to be able to work with such an incredible team and I look forward to meeting you and your four-legged friends! In my spare time, I walk dogs at a local shelter. I also love spending time with friends over a coffee, or unwinding at home with my husband Jose and my cat “Teo”.
