Working as care nurse for 26 years at SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital. I loved paediatrics ever since I was a student, I was lucky to join this hospital and be able to make my dream come true. Throughout this time I have been specialising in different areas, particularly in the field of Neonatology. The best moment of the day for me is when I see those “great little heroes” who come to see the “glass box” where they were born, running down the corridor.
