I was born in the US and grew up in Brazil, where I also started her advertising career in Goiânia. After finishing a Master’s Degree in Communications, I moved to the US to advance in the Global market, starting at DAVID Miami in 2018. In less than two years with my work at DAVID, I've won 8 Cannes Lions, being 3 Gold, 4 D&AD Pencils and 6 One Show. I have made the top 10 most awarded copywriters list in the Cannes Lions Festival and top 20 copywriters at the Drum list, being the only woman in the Cannes List and the highest ranked in the Drum list. In 2020, I've also been selected to be in The Creative 100 Adweek List for Rising Stars.

I've been part of the creative team responsible for PR worthy and award winning work for brands such as Budweiser, Burger King and Heinz Ketchup UK.
