Other personal information:

I am originally from Brazil, and I moved to the U.S. as a permanent resident in 2011.

My husband is from Wisconsin, and we met in Colorado while skiing and working at Keystone 10 years ago.

I have also lived in the U.K. and Japan.

When I was completing my Bachelor's Degree with a major in Japanese Language and Culture, I taught children and adults Japanese.

Here in Colorado, I volunteered for the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival for four years. For two years I managed the cohort of volunteers.

I am currently part of the Denver Asian American Pacific Islander Commission, a supporting organization that collaborates with the Agency for Human Rights and Community Partnerships and the office of the Mayor of Denver.

I am also a Denver Police Volunteer.

On my free time, besides volunteering, I enjoy exercising, reading, and writing.

I love ice-cream and Hokkaido cheesecake. I do well with early schedules.
