I was born and raised near Sao Paulo, Brazil. My family lives in Brazil. I have a beautiful niece and nephew. I came to Common Ground to work and be mentored by Pastor Tom Scornavacchi. I am excited to be part of Common Ground and learn about recovery ministry. As I see recovery ministry as a vital lifetime experience, which will enable myself to better serve the church and the community as a whole.
I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 14 years. I did my undergraduate in British and American Literature in Hayward, California and my Seminary Studies at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, in Berkeley, California. God blessed me with a love for cooking, feeding people, and listening to people. I am called by God to love God’s creation and serve in the ministry because God is Love.
