I am originally from Brazil, growing up sports was a huge part of my life. I was blessed with the opportunity to move to the US to attend Barry University in Miami on an athletic scholarship to play collegiate Volleyball. I later completed my studies at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Georgia.
During my interview at McKeesport I was captivated by the diversity among residents and faculty and by the program’s genuine commitment to the local underserved community. I am passionate about outdoor activities, running, and volunteering. Heinz field is my favorite spot for running in Pittsburgh.
