My name is Sanja and I was born in 1978 in Croatia, at the time, still part of Yugoslavia. A bit about me professionally: education has always been important in my family, and I hold two Bachelor’s degrees: one in Agriculture and another in Environmental studies. I’ve worked for 15 years in laboratories of pharmaceuticals companies, mostly in Quality and Stability Control as a Senior High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) analyst. Apart from HPLC techniques as my prime interest, I’m a trained analyst for Gas Chromatography (GC), Total organic carbon (TOC), dissolution, and several other instrumental analytical techniques.
On a personal note, I’m married and the proud mom of a wonderful son. I moved with my family in 2017 from Zagreb, Croatia to Vienna, Austria. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, being outdoors, hiking, biking, and I am generally speaking into fitness. I find being out in nature a great way to meditate and refill my batteries. Time permitting, I also enjoy reading a good book. Meeting new people and learning about other cultures is also something I enjoy very much. I otherwise love languages, though I am fluent only in Croatian, Serbian, English and German.
I learned in December 2017 about the initiative “No to cancer” launched by the Cancer Epigenetics Society. I fell immediately in love with the project, and became a part of great group of volunteers trying to help people around the world fight and prevent cancer. I am proud to be an Editor for the Croatian “Ne raku” and Serbian “Ne kanceru” pages. The engagement and amazing commitment of people to this project is invigorating and it gives me the opportunity to be a part of something that could make a difference and change the lives of people worldwide.
If fighting cancer is a cause you support, please “Like” our Facebook pages, and like and share our posts to help the project grow and to spread the word.
