Maria graduated from the University of Sydney with first class honours. She initially started working in small animal general practice on the central coast for several years before commencing a rotating internship at Sydney Veterinary Emergency and Specialists.
Maria has a special interest in ophthalmology and dermatology, but will not turn down opportunities to learn from other areas of veterinary medicine. She hopes to advance her emergency and medicine skills.
During her spare time, Maria likes spending plenty of time outdoors while hiking, travelling, reading and spending quality time with family and friends. She currently owns one quirky indoor lap-cat named Stella.
