Originally from Southern Spain, I graduated on 2010 and moved to the UK in 2016. Since graduation I have been practising in first opinion with a strong bias towards Diagnostic Imaging, particularly abdominal ultrasound of small companion and exotic animals.
I completed a Certificate in Diagnostic Imaging in 2020 and I joined the Hospital in February 2022. My main role is interpretation of radiographic and ultrasound studies, and I really enjoy working up complex cases and teaching our students. Outside of the hospital, I also provide training in imaging to first opinion veterinary practices.
When not at work I enjoy the great outdoors, reading and playing videogames. We have two very fluffy, pet Chinchillas at home.

She moved to the UK in 2018 to work in a referral practice as an ultrasonographer. She wrote a veterinary thesis on the comparison between biological data and ultrasonography of the pancreas. Advanced imaging of the pancreas is one of my imaging interests but she is interested in all areas of diagnostic imaging.
