Hi there, I'm Maria.
As you probably guessed by my name, I'm from across the sea, your sunny south neighbour, from Portugal. I graduated as a Veterinary surgeon from the University of Lisbon in 2018.
All the way through college I've always been one of many interests. When it comes to veterinary practice, I love all animals, no matter how big or small.
I started my career in Ireland as an Equine Vet and worked for two of the main equine hospitals in the racing industry.
As much as my love for horses still runs in my veins, I felt like I was missing something, so I decided to join the Kilcoole Vets team and focus on small animal practice.
My main interests are surgery and emergency care.
In my free time I'm an outside kind of girl. I like hiking with my family and my little dog, Kiki, horse riding, going to the gym, or just go for walk by the beach. And of course, travel the world as much as I can.
One thing you can expect from me is: I'll put every fiber of my being into the welfare and comfort of your pet.
