- About us
I lived in Portugal for five years and became fluent in Portuguese. After graduation, I did an internship for 2 months in the north of Portugal (Universidade de Tras-os-Montes e Alto Douro, Vila Real). Since my sophomore year, I was an intern at the Haabersty Clinic, where I fell in love with cats once and for all. At the moment I speak Russian, Estonian, English and Portuguese.
Gradually, I acquired all the qualities necessary to make my dream come true. Gymnastics has instilled in me courage and perseverance, which contributes to making quick and correct decisions in treating animals. Knowledge of foreign languages allows, in addition to excellent communication with the owners, to quickly find and analyze the necessary information. My love to animals and medicine kept me from giving up on my dream in times of need. The university provided all the necessary basic knowledge. Practice in Portugal has taught endurance and communication with the owners (it is communication and trusting relationships with the owner that are the key to successful treatment).
Practice at the Haabersti Clinic even before graduation taught me to understand the body language of cats: by the “facial” expression, the posture. You can only glance at the position of the ears to understand whether cat is calm, agitated, whether it will make contact, is it painful for a cat, or uncomfortable. And, what about Israeli dance, it helps me to replenish energy.
Since 2017, I have been working as a veterinarian at the Haabersti Clinic, constantly updating my knowledge at various national and international conferences and courses. I currently specialize in endocrinology, internal medicine, and intensive care.
