I had the opportunity to live in Europe (France) as a teenager and developed a huge interest in traveling and experiencing other cultures. I was part of the AIESEC organization that allowed me to work and study in Canada. I did an MBA in the US and worked at P&U’s headquarters in New Jersey. This allowed me to have a wide network all over the world, especially in the health area. I have signed important regional agreements and am considered Mr Positive because I never give up…
