I have been working in the field of neonatology for 20 years. I have coordinated, and continue working on, the Communication and Processes Committee. Reference nurse for the rare disease epidermolysis bullosa since 1999. Along with 5 colleagues, I have worked on the creation of a project for improving extremely preterm care and in the project of the new unit. Reference nurse in the care of thermoregulation and skin problems in neonates. Experience as unit coordinator for 6 months. "I love walking and spending as much time as possible in Menorca with family and friends. I've always liked my work, although the excessive noise there is in an ICU gets on top of me; that's why I appreciate silence so much when I'm at home."
