My name is Ana Catarina Pereira Pinto, I'm 36 years old and I am based in Aveiro.

I have been a nurse since 2010 with a Bachelor's degree from ESSUA.

I worked in an Emergency unit for 13 years and I currently work in an Intensive Care Unit, both at ULSRA.

Since 2020 I have been part of the EMS team at the same institution.

In May 2023 I received a Specialist Degree in Nursing (Decree-Law no. 206/2009).
