Born and raised in northern Virginia I've always had a courageous, down to earth, fun and driven spirit. Connecting with others is my calling and as a licensed real estate assistant I have the opportunity everyday to be of service, help others grow and witness people fulfill their dreams of home ownership. Prior to moving to Colorado in 2016, I lived in the countryside of Sao Paulo, Brazil. As a person who flunked Spanish in school I am proud to say that I speak Portuguese fluently! While in Brazil, I owned and taught at my English school "Explore English" which was comprised of over 130 students and 8 teachers. My eye for detail, researching skills and reliability is what landed me opportunities to translate academic journals for the University of São Paulo, business contracts and card games from Copag including Disney, Pokemon and Marvel games among many others. In my free time I explore all Colorado has to offer. I love having four seasons after 12 years of Brazilian summer, hiking in the majestic mountains, the open-mindedness of locals, amazing festivals, music scene, organic lifestyle and great schools. I keep busy with my three kids and husband and I also organize a popular Meet Up in Boulder called "Vamos Falar Português", which has helped me maintain my fluency and meet some very incredible and notable people in the community.
