I started my professional career at SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital 10 years ago. Since then, I have worked in different hospitalisation units and also at a special education school as a nurse. I currently work in the Endocrinology Department as a diabetes nurse educator. I like being a nurse, learning from my patients and at the same time teaching them. I like seeing a child's smile. In my free time I enjoy playing sport, reading and walking on the beach.
