I graduated from the University of Padova. I specialized in Internal Medicine in Lisbon, Portugal. I became a La Leche League leader before becoming a Lactation Consultant. I started training other health professionals in the Unicef breastfeeding counselling courses. I became an Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine member in 2010, where I was Regional Coordinator for Europe for 4 years. I am a fellow of the ABM since 2022. I am a board member of the EABM. I have a passion for sharing knowledge, specially on subjects that involve both internal medicine and breastfeeding medicine. I also have a special interest in the humanistic and social perspectives of breastfeeding.
