After graduating from university in psychology and after taking care of her sick mother, she decided that she would not act as a psychologist, as she had the desire to accompany and learn from her father and grandfather and maintain the beautiful trajectory of the Corrego farm. das Pedras.
And that's how she fell in love with coffee, with the stories and especially with the tradition of her family, which has always been producing coffee.
