Born and raised in Portugal and living in NYC since 2013, she is a Woman, an Architect, a Designer, a Wellness Coach (and even a DJ on her spare time), whose passion for Retail Interior Design led her to become a Sales Manager for different European Furniture Retailers.
While in Portugal, after working a few years for different Architecture firms, she became an Entrepreneur, opening the first Danish Contemporary Furniture Franchise business in her city, together with 2 friends. For 3 years, she ended up having a monthly feature on a TV show by the National dedicated TV channel for Women (SIC Mulher), where she would give tips on how to decorate spaces with Design.
After moving to NY, she became more focused on managing Furniture Retail stores and on the interpersonal relationships between staff and clients. While accessing to all types of brands and projects, she was helping from bigger clients - in staging and hospitality projects - to smaller projects, covering the most simple needs in order to help people to furnish their spaces, in a way that was functional and beautiful for them. Her personal growth path has helped her having a different attitude towards Interior Design, from the way she was choosing to work with colors, to the positioning of pieces in a room. After the transformative change that she went through in her health and well-being, as well as after helping several clients and realizing that the void of the superfluous beautiful design could not be here to stay, she decided to look for answers on how Interior Design could really serve people, so that they could have a "healthier environment" and promote their Wellness through decoration.
During lockdown in Covid-19, she decided to take the WildFit™ Coach Certification and study Feng Shui towards health. As it became so clear to her why the interior of her body and the interior of her home made such a difference on how she faced this difficult period!... She couldn't change what was happening outside, but she was happy she had changed her inside, before the lockdown.
