FROM PHYSIOTHERAPY TO TEAM LEADERSHIP

Daniela started out as a physiotherapist but soon realised that clinical practice did not fulfilled her completely. After this experience, she was invited to teach at the university level. Most of her teaching is in the field of Physiotherapy, Statistics and Research. In the meantime, she completed her master's degree in Epidemiology and her PhD in Public Health.

Nowadays, this professional is still working in the academic field, being deeply involved in project management. In most of her projects, Daniela takes on management and team leadership tasks and is constantly eager to increase her knowledge, always willing to venture out of her comfort zone.
