A clear passion for communication and awareness.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Communications, having worked in Brazil, my country of birth, as a language tutor and translator for individuals, small companies, and even large corporations.
In 1999, I came to the U.S. to study and eventually decided to make America my country and become a dual citizen. Being a bicultural and bilingual Brazilian-American gives me a broad view of the world and a unique advantage in tutoring from English to Portuguese, and vice-versa.
I also found a new calling in Life Coaching, when it was time to expand my ways to help others. I use my personal experiences and resilience – which allow me to relate and empathize with others strongly - to make a difference. As a 50+ woman (no, I do not hide my GenXer age), I have gone through several types of changes throughout the years: the early loss of a parent, immigration, motherhood, divorce, remarriage, and career shifts and branching - all significant patches of my life quilt. I offer Coaching in Portuguese or English.
I am a proud mom, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, friend. My world of people is what keeps me happy and grounded.
At the end of the day, the connections we make are
the true prizes we take.

Another Passion... Art & Stock Photography
Photography and Poetry are old passions of mine, and also wonderful mindfulness tools.
I have a certification in Professional Photography from NYIP and worked in the past with professional headshots portraiture, real estate, and events. Now I only devote myself to Art and Stock Photography, offering my images at my Etsy store and Shutterstock portfolio.
