Damjana has been surrounded by various animals since she was a child and she loves them all equally. She volunteered at a dog shelter in Ub for ten years. That work with abandoned animals marked her emotional path towards her current profession. She graduated from the Agricultural High School in Šabac. She also did work in large practice, but the small practice is still her favorite. She communicates with animals as with humans, and in addition to her love for veterinary medicine, she also writes poetry.
