Passionate. If I had to choose one word to define me, this would be it! I’m passionate about life, about my son, my husband, my family, my friends and, of course, about my work!

I always worked in the digital area, since I started working, 16 years ago. And I’m passionate about it. 🙂

In 2014, after a hard breakup of a long relationship (10 years!) I decided to go to France, to learn French for 6 months. Four months after my decision, I was getting on the plane. And in my first week in Paris, I decided that I wasn’t staying just for six months. So, what was the next step? Finding a job!

And (it was meant to be!) 3 weeks later, I got a new job, by a post on Facebook. I didn’t speak French, just English, but the role was to work in some projects for Brazil. So, perfect! 🙂

A little detail: the offer was to be a trainee and I worked in Brazil for many years as a Marketing Manager. But the role didn’t matter to me! What I wanted was to get an opportunity to work with French people and learn more about the local culture, get an international experience and, of course, help to pay my bills (in euros!) to stay in Paris.

Since the beginning of my career, I learned that everything that you do at work, you should do the best that you can. From answering an email to working on a big project: just do your best! So, that’s what I did (with a lot of passion!) and… my boss promoted me after 3 months! So I became Chief Content Officer and I became responsible for the office management and the management of all global projects. My boss paid for a working visa for me so I was the happiest girl in town! (I assure you!).

My french improved day by day (and my passion for the country too). And I had the experience of managing a multicultural team (people from Colombia, Serbia, England, Brazil, France, US…). I learned a lot!

But then my boss decided to close the agency in France and open in Sao Paulo, Brazil. And asked me to lead it. At first, I said no (France was my biggest passion, my place in the world!). But, for some personal reasons, in the end, I decided to accept his offer and come back to Brazil.

One year after I came back, I found TSC/Foundever. A big friend of mine that worked with me in France, told me that there was a great opportunity (and in a french company!). I remember that in my first interview, with Dorothèe, I already got passionate about the opportunity to open TSC operations in Brazil, about working with an international team again and about learning more about chatbots and improving customer experience.

It’s been two years since I’m working in TSC/Foundever and I never felt so passionate about my work, as I feel now. I absolutely love what I do. I’m excited to wake up every morning and think how I can improve CX for our new clients, I love chatbots (I’m just thinking that I need to create my own personal bot to answer my friends as, now, with my 10 month-old baby and my work, I have no time anymore! :P) and I never felt so much identification with a company, as I feel with Foundever. I think that it’s very important that you work in a place where you connect with the values and I’m totally connected to Foundever values, it’s everything that I believe.

In Foundever, I had the luck to work with the best managers that I’ve ever met in my life (and, yes, I’m passionate about them). Dorothèe (that is my biggest inspiration, that taught me a lot) and Laurent – that changed so many lives with his sensitive and amazing leadership.

My work accomplishes me every day. And I know that this “passionate thing” is very Brazilian! 😛 But I’m not ashamed of it. I know that my passion moves me to do my best, to want to improve every day, to want me to do better and better. It makes me want to take courses to learn more and bring more ideas, it makes me wake up every morning with a lot of energy and happiness, it makes me feel alive.

I’m passionate. I’m passionate and I think that you should start to think about what makes you feel passionate too! 🙂 <3
