Graduate in Vet Medicine in 1990 I spent my firsts working years in mixed practice. Then I joined Bayer AH in 1994 where I started to work in the Marketing Dept. at first, to move to R&D/Technical Dept., in 1997. I started to work on Antinfectives and Parasiticides as well as on Pest's Controls range products (Rodents and Insects). Since then I mainly focused my work on parasites control and prevention. However moving from Bayer to other Int’l Pharm. Companies I participated in research and developing phases of many different Vet Drug products. In 2005 I become Diplomate of the European Veterinary College of Parasitology (EVPC). Despite my main background in parasitology — I handled projects in antimicrobial therapy, urology, dermatology, reproduction and other branches of Companion Animals Veterinary Clinical Medicine— so I had a lot of reading to be apt handle them properly. Most of the cases I worked were technical and required intensive engagement with scientists and the research literature. For many years of my working life, I chose to work as consultant, for International Pharmaceutical Companies and CROs. Consultants are often expected to be experts in everything they work on, but in reality, good consultants know how to ask questions, find and collect data, and synthesize unstructured information into insights that are practical and meaningful to their clients and/or their managers I pored over scientific literature as well as business reports, interviewed OL Practitioner and Pet Owners , and synthesized the findings into PowerPoint presentations. My favorite aspects of the work are the variety of projects, the opportunity to work with smart people from diverse backgrounds, and the intellectual stimulation. I likes my work keeps me close to science and allows me to project, organize and monitor scientific studies and communicate my experience and knowledge to different audiences.
