I have 20 years’ experience working in the forest sector on sustainability issues. My experience spans from international forest policy to operational forestry, collaborating in the organization of processes and efforts to continuously improve results. I am a Forest engineer with a master’s degree on forest policy and economics. Over the years, I have been involved on socio-environmental projects, including landscape approaches, dispute resolution, environmental restoration, multi-stakeholder dialogue and forest certification in Brazil, internationally and in countries such as Guatemala, Tanzania, and New Zealand. I Co-founded Rede Mulher Florestal, an NGO that works to promote gender equality in the forest sector, and was the first presidente in addition to being on the Board of Directors since 2018. I enjoy working at the interface between private and non-profit actors forging constructive alliances and pathways towards sustainability outcomes. I have proven competency in embedding sustainability into supply chains, certification, fundraising, partnership establishment, strategic program development, project management, communications, and facilitation. I’m passionate about forests and committed to improving the way people manage, value, and respect them.
