I was born and raised in Brazil. However, for 16 years I lived in the cold state of Minnesota before moving to the Pensacola area in 2022. For 15 of those years, I worked in a clinical setting alongside doctors providing healthcare to patients as a Medical Assistant. I have a bachelor's degree in education. Prior to being a Medical Assistant I spent 10 years as a teacher for pre-k all the way through high school. Recently, I have felt a pull by the Holy Spirit to come back to teaching. Through many heartfelt prayers, and a seemingly miraculous chain of events, God has led me to Pensacola Junior Academy.
I have spent my entire life serving God and my fellow neighbors. Whether it has been in the Seventh-day Adventist church where I helped my father start up and grow numerous churches in Brazil or teaching students the basics of life and how to know a loving God to showing compassion on the sick, I've always had a place in my heart for service to others. I know this is where God has led me, and I promise to show the same compassion and love that I've unfailingly brought my whole life to every person that walks through the doors of PJA.
