I love animals because they never disappoint us and are able to offer unconditional love. I have graduated from the University of Agronomical Sciences and Veterinary Medicine in 2012, Romania, with a Master’s degree in Small Animal and Equines Pathology and a great interest in Veterinary Parasitology and Laboratory. In 2013, I started my Ph.D. in epithelial cancer in dogs and cats. I have started to volunteer at the faculty’s clinic since my 3rd year of study and continued with my career in small animal pathology and laboratory. I have one cat and ten rats. My interests outside of work include traveling, writing, and crafting.
