I was born in Brazil, where I lived for half of my life. The other half, I have spent in Europe with my husband moving from place to place, trying to find our paradise to settle down. We now live in Geneva, Switzerland, where we plan to stay for a while, as it feels very close to what we call perfection, I hope it doesn't spoil us too much!

 

My passion for Nutrition started a long time ago, even if I didn't realise much at the time. I was brought up in a macrobiotic family and food was consumed not just for pleasure but also for prevention and treatment. Later on, driven by a desire to help other people get healthier, I have decided to pursue a Nutrition career.

 

At the age of 29, I was diagnosed with severe endometriosis and infertility. Despite suffering intense pain and disconfort, this wasn't as sad as it seems. It actually helped me change the course of my life. Being determined to find a more natural and sustainable solution to my situation, I refused to take the drugs recommended by the doctors for suppressing the disease and I went back to my roots, I was sure to be able to relief pain naturally through food.

 

That's when I started a new diet, that has dramatically improved the quality of my life just after a few weeks but I still wanted to get emotional support and improve my chances to become pregnant, that's when I went to see acupuncturists, osteopaths, chiropractors and homeopaths. They were all very helpful to me but it wasn’t until I started to look at life in a more holistic way, getting rid of my fears and finding my passions, that I could see a real change in my emotional health and personal life.

 

That made me realize the importance of a professional that could introduce all this aspects into someone's life. And finally, I decided to become a Health coach and later refresh my studies as a nutritionist  to be bale to help people holistically and support them to achieve their goals.

 

Today, I’m a mother of 2 kids and I have a very happy life with my family. I'm totally in love with my career and the possibility to change other people's life too.

 

If you would like to find out more about my work,  I would be happy to offer you a first consultation by phone and also to hear your history.

 

I wish you lot’s of happiness,
