What does your role entail at lecocqassociate?
I am the link between the client and the lawyers. I support them in all administrative matters such as filing, keeping legal documents in order, and whatever they need whether it be a good cup of coffee or just a laugh!
Tell us about your academic and professional background.
I started off my career as an executive assistant back when I was still living in Brazil. With my curiosity to explore the world, I then decided to join Emirates as a business class flight attendant.
On days that I wasn’t flying, I studied and got my diploma in Business Management from Pearsons in 2017. In 2021 I joined the lecocqassociate Dubai team.
What do you consider to be your biggest professional achievement?
My greatest achievement is the fact that I left Brazil to the U.K., not knowing a single word of English, and learnt the language in a span of 7 months! Most of all, I had fun at the same time.
What is the most impactful thing you have done?
During Christmas I bought gifts for a group of children selling sweets on the street.
How many languages do you speak?
Portuguese, English and I speak a little of Spanish.
What drives you?
I always want to be a better person than I was yesterday. Whether it be big or small, I always strive to make improvements in my personal life.
Business aside, what do you enjoy doing when you are not in the office?
CrossFit, travelling, movies, scuba diving and golf (although I am terrible at it)
What is your secret talent?
I can sleep for 24 hours if I want to.
