As a graduate of the University of Florida, I have worked in both the public and private sectors of hospitality & events. From medieval fairs to art festivals, historic community events to wine festivals, and finally from large-scale conventions to weddings, I feel I have a one-of-a-kind view on event planning.
In my role as the Hospitality & Events Sales Manager for The River View with NOVA Parks, I work directly with clients from the touring phase, throughout planning, and during the day-of execution. I have been in this role for three years and I LOVE helping clients make their day go smoothly.
- I am obsessed with my dogs (Cotton & Crash)
- I'm an east-coast girl who has lived in New Hampshire, Florida, and now Virginia.
- In my free time, you'll find me roller skating!

After working 2 years at Events Services (GMU) as a Lead, working with a wedding planner as her intern, and graduating from George Mason University, I quickly realized that events is what I love to do.
As the Events Coordinator at The River View, I am able to show all clients my passion when delivering their event. My happiness comes from seeing others happy!
I am very thankful to work with an amazing and caring staff that makes coming to work something to look forward to. It's true when they say, if you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life!
- I was born and raised in Brazil (Yes, I can speak Portuguese)
I am very competitive when it comes to board games
On my free time, I like to do anything that's arts and crafts
