I grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and have always been drawn to spirituality and the energy that surrounds us. I have always believed in positivity which comes from within, but also from the environment around you. I moved to the United States in 1996 to study graphic design, then went to FIDM to study fashion in 2007. I feel the creativity of design and the visualization of fashion helps me in my approach to each organizing project.
After over a decade in the fashion industry, including high-end stores, TV and fashion companies and becoming a mom, I learned how important it was to maintain order to perform at your full potential and to keep a busy life organized. Although I was working in the field I studied, I found myself organizing and decorating my friends closets and homes on the weekends and soon realized that helping people simplify their lives was my true calling. My vision for an organizing project is always fun, colorful and I love to bring joy to my clients with those final touch details. My biggest reward is the look of joy on my clients faces when a project is complete.
I grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and spent a lot of time in my mom and aunt’s antique store. I was fascinated with how they were able to merchandise so many pieces and I quickly learned how to organize at a young age. After studying Marketing in Rio, I worked for Mercedes Benz creating image and branding and at Varig Airlines where I worked to expand their branding, marketing and events. I have always been fascinated with the holistic world and after moving to California in 2002, I got deeper into Reiki studies and became a Reiki Master in 2018. I’m working on my sound healing training and continue practice meditation and yoga on a regular basis.
As my two boys got older, I began hosting events at my house, organizing parties for friends and arranging bazars with people in my community to donate to charity. I found the positive energy surrounding those activities made me want to do more. It wasn’t just the satisfaction of tackling these events, but the way it made others feel that brought me to realize what organizing can mean. For me it’s not just about bringing calm to the chaos, but feeding the soul.
For us, happiness is the simplicity of the small things in life. Our passion for nature, sunsets and the ocean always recharges our energy and brings us back to our roots in Brazil. We believe that “less is more” and living a holistic lifestyle can help you connect you to your soul.
