After graduated as a Dentist at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), she decided to specialize in Family Health at the National School of Public Health (ENSP/FIOCRUZ). Her thesis of the post-graduation course was elaborated over 3 years of research in the practice of bonding and care working with children and how they are closely linked.
This fantastic experience she brought onto the mats, giving our children’s BJJ programs unique characteristics, which you will not be able to find on any mat. “Coach Bia”, how she is affectionately called by parents and students helps in coordinating children’s BJJ programs as well as assisting Professor Eduardo for a smooth progress of classes. She is also responsible for designing the Gym Events, such as Parents Night Out, Summer Camps, Belt Exams and so on.
She found in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu her love for working with kids and promote health in the various ways in which this remarkable martial art can provide for children.
