I grew up with animals, because my grandparents used to have a farm in Brazil. My parents gave me pets to take care since I was a child, because they believed that could improve my personal skills such as responsability and friendship. So, my love for animals started to grow. I ended up choosing the veterinary profession in my country (Brazil). My educational background has given me the opportunity of working with animal behavior, trainning of dogs and ecology. Some of the dogs that I took care stayed in my house during training period and one in particular was donated to me in the end of the process. This dog became my best companion dog for years and I learned a lot with him. Thus, I can say that my life has always been animal. I can work in the Chifley, Maroubra and Cogee suburbs, whereas I would preffer the fist one.
