In 2019 she finished her MBA at the Fundação Getúlio Vargas in Rio de Janeiro, and joined the Master of Human Resource Management at the Fisher College of Business of The Ohio State University. As a student, she was an active member of the community, serving in student organizations such as Fisher Board Fellows and the Fisher Graduate Latino Association. She was also an international student liaison for the MHRM Council and participated in the Diversity and Inclusion Committee. As a graduate assistant, she worked at the Graduate Programs Office supporting MBA Recruiting and Admissions. In 2020, she was an intern at Microsoft and is returning to the company in a full-time role in July 2021, as part of their Human Resource Rotation Program.
