Favorite Quote
“We become the makers of our own fate once we have ceased to pose as it’s prophet.” –Sir Karl Popper

I am a first generation American (my family is from Brazil) and I am a writer! I served for two years in the Peace Corps in Ethiopia building early grade reading centers, and I absolutely adore reading. I have 9 siblings, one beautiful 9 year old Black Lab and one huge horse (I am also an equestrian!), and I spent an entire year traveling across the United States writing and exploring our National Park system. Dance, music, education, travel, horses, history, reading, and writing are just a few of my passions.
