Bayer was a new start for me. Due to a bone cancer I lost my left arm and my job as a dentist. Bayer supported me in my new pathway. It was an opportunity to self-development and engagement in a huge company.
In my beginning at Bayer I was as a part-time employee and worked also in Sao Paulo City Hall. In 2010 I started a leadership position at Bayer and left my other job. That was a quite difficult decision. Today I know it was the right step.
I love my team! The generations Y, Z and Millennial’s are young, powerful and great! We work closely and the environment is fantastic. Diversity makes me to grow!

I am passionate. My teammates usually call me: “mother Su” due to my fraternal sight in daily work and in the life. That includes caring and a certain severity.
Being a role model to my daughter. Empower her to be a strong woman, able to make her own choices in a respectful way with others and to challenge the status quo.

“I was a dentist in 2006, working both in a private practice and municipal clinic in São Paulo, Brazil, when my life changed radically. I was diagnosed with a bone tumor.”
“A year later, after surgeries and chemotherapies, I had lost my left arm. And it was time to start a new and different life.”
“A good friend of mine working at Bayer told me that the company was offering a position especially for disabled people under its Diversity Program.”
“I was nervous about changing from a dental practice to the corporate world. I applied – and got the job, researching answers to medical questions. But that was not all.”
“I am passionate about para-synchro swimming, a rare sports discipline in Brazil and elsewhere. And Bayer became my sponsor because the company values passion and dedication. That’s Bayer for me.”
