Can you provide a summary of your professional career and the driving force behind your daily routines?

From there, I progressed through various roles in the healthcare industry, ranging from hospital representative to my current position as a country manager in the dental industry. Throughout my career, I have worked in different sectors of the healthcare industry, including pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and others. Each new position has provided me with valuable experiences and knowl­edge, contributing to my continuous growth in the healthcare sector.
