I am a native of São Paulo, Brazil. I have been passionate about dance since childhood and throughout my life, growing up with samba and all the varied rhythms of my native country. In 2010, I attended my first Zumba class and the passion about dance that I first experienced as a child was reproduced in that class. In 2016, I became a Zumba instructor and received my certification as a group fitness instructor by the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America. I joined the Weviva team in September 2016, and ever since I have been honored to be part of this loving mission where I have the opportunity to bring joy, hope and transformation for our community through fitness.
