During her studies, she completed a one-year exchange at the Louis Pasteur Faculty of Medicine of the University of Strasbourg. She passed the specialist exam in family medicine with honors in 2019.

Aesthetic medicine is a science that I have followed since the very beginning of my career, and that is precisely why I learned the principles and peculiarities of this field early on and mastered the key techniques. Like any branch of medicine, aesthetic medicine also requires a lot of knowledge, skills and continuous improvement. Its special feature is that it brings many smiles to the faces of patients. The goal of aesthetic medicine is to improve the quality of your life, and I insist on a personal approach and natural results. I do my work with heart, passion and respect, and in achieving my goals I successfully use a holistic and individualized approach, which is the foundation of family medicine.
