I started my career as a pharmacist, with the goal of improving people's quality of life and I soon realized that this requires much more than medicines. During more than 18 years I worked for multinational pharmaceutical companies, going through different roles in sales, marketing and new business models.
Being aware that personal and professional well-being is essential and based on the benefits I was feeling from my personal yoga and meditation practice, I started an ongoing process of study, research and practice in this area.
In 2018 I became a SIY Certified Teacher and I am also a Conscious Parenting and Conscious Aging Facilitator.
Currently, I am Co-Founder and Lead Mindfulness Instructor at The School of We, a community for learning and building new ways of relating in business, society and with ourselves. Since 2018 I am also responsible for the Mindfulness at Workplace programs at Ser Integral - Centro Português de Mindfulness.
