PERSONAL COMMENT

I was born and raised in Brazil, but I have recently made London my home. I have felt passionate about supporting my new community in any way that I could, specifically assisting Fanshawe students with their endeavors. I believe the greatest accomplishment a person can have is to help others achieve their goals. My keen interest in business was nurtured by my father who owned various business’ where I spent my youth watching and participating in the day-to-day operations and administration. This in turn sparked my desire to improve my knowledge and accounting skills.

I grew up in the countryside of Sao Paulo State and my passions are entertaining and travelling. Welcoming friends and family into my home brings joy to my heart and I gladly continue my family traditions here in Canada. My Canadian summers are now spent by the lake and my winters are spent learning to ski.
