Partner & Manager, PrimaLynx – Sustainable Solutions, Lda
Ana Jervis Zootechnical Engineer; Social Entrepreneur and Sustainability Promoter When I was a child, I liked to do beachcombing, discovering animals, seaweeds and debris on the high tide line. I wanted to be an astronaut, then a veterinarian, and then I graduated in Zootechnical Engineering, I attended a MSc in Marine and Coastal Sciences and worked as a biologist in public aquaria, with fish, amphibians and reptiles, in Environmental Education, Marine Biology and Natural Beekeeping.
I have made my contribution in the management of environmental projects, supporting school projects, creating of a pedagogical apiary and civic and environmental movements, such as Aveiro em Transição (AeT), which has given me the opportunity to know so many other projects and people, in other countries, and realize how I like to bring them together, projects and people. Work, beekeeping and Transition Towns have led me to work with my colleague Miguel with the YogurtNest project, in the company where we create tools to empower families and make them more sustainable, resilient and happy. I cannot live without doing outdoor activities and sports, cooking with wild plants, photographing and traveling to get to know places, people and new flavors.
