The experience of 12 years as a nurse (First Section of Neonatology of Polizu Maternity in Bucharest, then Surgery Section of the Emergency Hospital St. Pantelimon) and dentistry studies helped Iulia to be chosen in 2000 in Romanian Angel Appeal Foundation team to work on the first itinerant medical project in Romania that time, Dental and dermatological assistance program through Mobile Unit (MU) which have HIV-infected children as beneficiaries across the country.
A drawing made by a 13 years old patient and the meaningful interpretation of that draw made by the psychologist from the day ward where the girl was patient have attracted Iulia’s attention. It followed almost naturally, the study of psychology to understand how to be well prepared in escorting people on the road of accepting a hard diagnostic.
Continuing to be involved in projects targeting children’s health, Iulia coordinated “First bebe” – a program of prenatal education – and contributed to the qualification of unemployed woman as babysitter in the “School for Nannies” project. Currently she is an active part in the most projects of Foundation whose purpose is providing medical and psychosocial services for people belonging to vulnerable groups.

She is now studying methods – proposed in Multigenerational Psychotherapy – that explores how the difficult events of our life and family can significantly influence our identity.
