I AM ALFA because I am fierce. I don’t give up and I like to build other women up instead of tearing them down as I understand the importance of being supportive, loyal, and kind.

I am originally from Brazil but did all my high school in the US and also part of my university in Seattle. I moved to Canada in 2007 for work as I have a master in physical therapy. in 2009 I got married and now we have 2 beautiful children.

I am a certified trainer and I absolutely love it. Having worked in the hospital and especially ICU for years, I got to see a lot of bad stuff, death, disease, and suffering. Training clients brought to me the preventive side of medicine where I can actually change people’s lives and bring them to a side of their lives where is full of joy, by achieving their physical goals and also mentally changing their mind set and helping them live a healthier life style.

I AM ALFA because I am fierce. I don’t give up and like to build other women up instead of tearing them down as I understand the importance of being supportive, loyal, and kind. I am also Alfa because when I set a goal, there is no stopping me and I like to show others that it is possible to have a career, be a wife, a mom and also have your personal space, needs and values and still be yourself but also be able to juggle it all without losing who you are.

What are the most rewarding things that Fitness has brought you? Fitness has brought me self-discipline, perseverance and a sense of "hard work pays off". It has also brought me some good friendships, a sense of being complete and the purpose i have always felt on helping people and being a mentor.

When was the most alfa moment in your life, and why? I can say I had a few ones as moving by myself and doing high school in the US when I was only 15 was a big deal but the biggest one has to be finishing my first bikini competition with a short prep of less than 12 weeks and getting third place in 2019. Also, I could have used every excuse in the world to not finish it as I have 2 little kids and yes it was hard juggling nutrition, morning and evening workouts (I did have my husband’s help, thank you Greg) and the overall feeling of questioning if I looked good enough, if it will be enough to step in that stage. I went to a posing class with Darren Toma, who became my coach and a friend and told him i wanted to compete and he said it can be done if you work hard. So, I did. No excuses, no cheating, no short cuts and on October 2019 i stepped in that stage and it felt so good! The feeling of finishing something and achieving a goal was the best feeling in the world.
