Close your eyes. Think of “home”.
If it’s not right where you are, right within you in this moment, you might be feeling lost, lonely, and unsure. It is human nature to want to feel grounded or rooted, but what if you could shift your perspective and view your life instead as a powerful and ever-changing sea?
I know what it’s like to be a stranger in a strange land. In fact, I’m so familiar with the concept that I now consider myself to be a citizen of the world. I’ve lived on three different continents, having had such unique and diverse experiences each time, I can now recognize how each enriched my life.
I’ve learned that my sense of worth and belonging can’t be found anywhere on the globe, the true belonging is inside of each one of us.
“True belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are; it requires us to be who we are.” Brene Brown
Born in one of the most multicultural cities in the south of Brazil (Curitiba/Paraná), I was exposed to the strength and beauty of diversity from a young age. It ignited a fire in me to connect with and learn as much as possible about different people, their languages, their traditions and gifts.
Love took me to Italy. After I married my husband, I moved to Milan, where I spent 12 important years. Since the beginning, I had to adapt myself to a new culture and environment, there were so many challenging moments in order to get settled in this place that became my home. It was there that I gave birth to my two beautiful children, and that my life started to have new meaning and purpose.
A New Chapter...
In 2012, our family moved here to the States (Michigan, specifically), and a new chapter of my personal and professional life began. Another time, I had to start over and recreate my place in a new place. There were new and different challenges now adapting in a new culture, many things to learn and to discover.
It was a moment to look back on some of the experiences I have lived, what I’ve learned, and the willing to rediscover my true self and to create a meaningful life abroad guided by my values wherever you are.

I know because I’ve done it, and I’m a work in progress. I’ve spent the last years in a profound and transformative experience; learning the art of letting go; how to live in alignment with my own values; how to be even more resilient to change; and I’ve realized my own potential.
I’m passionate about helping individuals become more effective, and to live meaningful and prosperous lives abroad.
