Professional Statement

I love working with children. They’re fighters and bring hope to everyone around them. I believe in partnering with parents and families to provide their children with tools to succeed. Sometimes, these tools include medications and therapies. But, the most important tools of all: hope and love.

Personal Interests

My husband and I feel fortunate to be raising our daughters in the Pacific Northwest. We’re able to take advantage of the culture and excitement of a city like Seattle – but we’re also close to nature. During our free time, you might find our family hiking at Mt. Rainier, visiting national parks or soaking in a sunset from Magnuson Park. I love to surprise my American friends with traditional Brazilian foods like feijoada (a stew with meat and beans) and brigadeiro (a sweet confection). If you ever travel to Brazil, you must try these dishes!
