Ândria Lopes dos Santos

Veterinary Technician
Andria is from Curitiba, Parana in Brazil. She moved to Nanaimo at the end of 2017 with her husband, after graduating in 2016 at the Pontifical Catholic University of Parana as a Veterinary Doctor (DVM). She worked as a veterinarian in Brazil for a year and a half in the marketing area of exotic animals and aquarium fish. She has been working as a Veterinary Technician since 2018 and hopes to specialize in veterinary ultrasonography and study for the exams to get her Canadian veterinary license. She loves to travel around the world, meet new people, and spend weekends on the sofa with her feather/fur family watching movies. She has a mini zoo in her apartment, and brought her two lovebirds from Brazil, Billie Joe and Luke Skywalker, and her bunny, Bllu. After she moved to Canada, she got two Italian greyhounds, Luna and Avery. She wishes to have a little farm in the future, so she can have a lot of different animals at home!
