My full name is Dr. Anna Morera Leralta but I’m better known as just Dr. Anna.
I was born in the beautiful city of Barcelona, Spain. I was fortunate to be raised by my wonderful parents, who provided me with everything I ever needed - and more. I keep lovely memories of my childhood.
I was a shy and nerdy only child, often on my own. Biology and science became my sanctuary. Saturday mornings, dad would take me to his clinic where I would shadow him. I don’t know of many teenagers who were assisting in dental surgery on the weekends. I loved it.
When I was 13 years old, I attended a school for gifted athletes where I practiced golf. It was my time to unwind - on the beautiful green pitch, with the sound of birds chirping and the sun beaming down. It also brought out the competitive spirit in me; the swing had to be perfect - I’m still working on that! Though it’s almost better than my dad’s... which ruffles his feathers.
At the age of 17, I made the decision to study medicine. I applied and was accepted. The idea of being a part of a profession focused on helping others regardless of circumstance, I couldn’t imagine a more fulfilling job. The thought of it got me excited waking up every morning.
Six years - and many hours of study - later, I was proud to receive my medical degree. My whole family was gathered as I took my oath and affirmed my purpose in life to put my talents and abilities at the service of others. I cherish humility, family, integrity and empathy above all else.
Today, as a medical doctor, it is my duty to seek the newest and best tested remedies to treat my patients. It certainly wasn’t always easy growing up as the daughter of a highly successful doctor and surgeon, and an all-capable business-savvy mom - but I hope to act out my potential, serve my community and leave the world a better place.
I’m the co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of MJ Medtech. It is our mission to advance botanical-based medicine to the forefront by deploying best-practice science and medicine, clinical research and emerging technologies related to medicinal cannabis and mushrooms.
