Fernanda graduated from the University Lufosona (Lisbon, Portugal) in 2013. She then moved to the North of England, where she worked for two and a half years in a busy first opinion practice. With the aim of improving her clinical skills and seeking a specialisation, Fernanda completed a rotating internship here at Willows, followed by an ICU internship at the University College Dublin.
In 2018 Fernanda began her three-year Residency in Emergency and Critical Care at the Royal Veterinary College and became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Emergency Critical Care in October 2022.
Fernanda joined Willows' Specialist team in 2021, where she enjoys all aspects of Emergency and Critical Care.
Outside of work, she likes to travel, try new restaurants, spend time with friends, read, and watch series and movies. She has also recently become a plant enthusiast!
