My name is Daniela, and I am currently pursuing my Global Health Masters degree in the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Among the reasons for which I decided to join the IMAGE project, I would highlight my great interest in scientific research in the context of Mental Health and interventions for diverse populations.
This theme is in line with my professional background as a Nurse over the last 15 years, when I had the opportunity to work in private and public health care, including extremely poor communities in Brazil. It was very intensive work in order to implement several services and to plan and execute extensive Nursing care, which brought me broad practical experience in Emergency Room Management, Outpatient Care, Prevention & Health Promotion, and training.
My focus in the IMAGE project is related to providing the career advisors better conditions to support autistic Higher Education graduates towards employment.
In my free time, I love taking care of my cats, gardening, and traveling!
