"The pediatric patient is special, requires individualized and respectful attention; But also cheerful and involving the game.

General Info

About me

I like children very much, I love their contagious joy and their transparency. As a mother of two I have tried to be empathic with the experience of a disease and its impact on families. I believe in the importance of reaching agreements and reconciling with the needs and expectations of parents. I like children to be comfortable with me and not see me threatening or imposing.
