As a CrossFit gymnastics and USA Weightlifting coach and athlete, I’m excited to share my passion for fitness with others by helping them become the best version of themselves.
When not at the gym I enjoy spending time with my husband (Kit) and son (Corbin) and our 2 dogs. I also work as a hairstylist and I’m currently studying nutrition.
I was born and raised in Curitiba, Brazil. I received my MD degree in 2002 followed by residency in ophthalmology. Now married with two beautiful daughters, I’m happy to join the Steadfast team where we can help others to develop the same passion for sport and fitness. When I’m not at Steadfast I spend most of my time taking care of my family. As we can never stop learning, I love to read about nutrition and on how to keep our movements safe while performing this beautiful sport.
I’ve been working in the fitness and sports industry since 1995. I started competing in weightlifting in 2000. I coach to hopefully help others reach whatever goals they have in lifting or fitness and maybe more just like all my coaches have done for me.
