 Personal
Personal details:

I am a spanish person who lived in different cities in Spain to finally become an Embryologist. I did some exchanges with french families and also worked in Scotland (UK) to improve my English. I am currently working in Belgium in an IVF laboratory. Due to this I speak different languages:

  • SPANISH - Native Speaker
  • ENGLISH - Advanced 
  • FRENCH - Lower Intermediate
  • NEDERLANDS - Basic Low
Interests and Hobbies:

I love walking in nature, travelling to new places and live there, so I can discover its culture, its life style and its language. I think it is important to become a part of the community and the best way to reach it is learning as much as you can from the place you are.

I also enjoy learning about the ART. It does not matter how many congresses you attend to, there will always be something knew to learn. Some congresses and courses I attended to:

  • An Advanced course in Trophectoderm Biopsies – Valencia, Spain
  • The 4th Biomarker Meeting in Personalized Reproductive Medicine; Biomarkers for the Assessment of Ovarian Reserve, Gametes, Embryos, Endometrium and Pregnancy in Health and Disease – Valencia, Spain
