Atty. Fernandez served as a Program Development Associate of the UP Diliman Office of the Vice-Chancellor for Research and Development (OVCRD) from 2004 to 2013. She also served as a consultant for IPOPHL and the Department of Science and Technology (DOST). Atty. Fernandez graduated magna cum laude with a degree in AB Sociology in 1994 from UP Diliman, where she also obtained a degree in Law in 1998, placing 9th in her class. She was admitted to the Philippine Bar in 1999.

To become a patent agent, one should first undergo an intensive training consisting of modules on foundations of intellectual property (IP), patent search and documentation, substantive examination procedure, and patent drafting. This training is conducted by the IPOPHL in collaboration with the European Patent Office and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). Given their extensive knowledge of the patent system, patent agents are crucial in the technology transfer process especially in terms of assisting inventors in the drafting, filing and prosecution of their patent applications.

A total of 22 examinees passed the 2013 PAQE. Aside from joining the IPOPHL Registry, Dr. Pacheco and Atty. Fernandez will also be recommended for appointment as University Patent Agents.
