I am absolutely passionate about getting the most of ingredients and turning them into delicious, nourishing and stunning food.
I have decided to follow my passion and use my first career path from International Relations and Business Administration to reach others through the most sincere form of care and love: food.
I have a diploma in Culinary Arts from Le Cordon Bleu, Boston, MA. After graduating as class valedictorian and receiving high honors, I’ve worked at D.O.M., a two Michelin stars restaurant in Brazil, where I had the opportunity to learn from one of the most renowned chefs in the world.
After some years working with pastry, I’ve decided to focus on my day-to-day passion: developing and cooking delightful meals that are also nutritious! Since moving back to Boston, MA, in 2017 I have specialized in healthy cooking, attending classes at Natural Gourmet Institute (NGI) and graduating as Health Coach from Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), both in NY.
In 2018, I received my certificate as a Culinary Coach from Harvard Medical School and since then I have been helping clients to incorporate the habit of healthy cooking at home, developing customized recipes and teaching cooking classes in person and online.
I am also the Executive Chef and Recipe Developer for EatWell, a Boston start up with the mission to make healthy eating more accessible for low income, urban families.
Last but not least, I am the Culinary Coach for the beautiful project “Medicos na Cozinha” in Brazil, alongside of a team of registered dietitians and doctors, to present the field of Culinary Medicine and the importance of cooking and healthy eating to other doctors.
Previously, I’ve worked as the Chef and Food Stylist of Estudio Gastronomico, one of the largest food photography studios in Brazil, with which I also taught food styling classes at Escola Panamericana de Artes. I have food styled for clients such as Nestle, Bunge, Dolce Gusto, Ajinomoto, BR Foods, Brinox, restaurants, books and magazines, and Brazilian chefs.
