I have a bachelor’s degree in economy from the University of Economic Studies and Public Administration, Suceava as well as a master’s degree in management of trade, tourism and services from the University of Suceava. Previously worked as Sales Manager, Marketing Director and Environmental Protection Officer. Currently Censor of Romanian Cancer Patients Federation and Vice-President of MIELOPRO Association (The Association of Patients with Chronic Myeloproliferative Neoplasia).
First of all because I am a patient myself, diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia. So, I am personally aware of the challenges that cancer may pose. I use all my energy and free time to help those in similar situations, regardless of the type of neoplasia. In addition to daily work, I have organised, within the Association, a series of local activities to support cancer patients and have participated in various educational and informative campaigns on cancer, the necessity and importance of regular medical examinations and prophylactic measures. As vice-president, I have been involved in the annual organisation of the MIELOPRO conference, which contributes both to increasing the patient’s knowledge about their illness but also to ensure friendship and support between the participants. And last but not least, in the loving memory of my cancer–defeated father, I would like to contribute, regardless of effort, to the fight against this terrible disease.
