As a professional surfer she started the first female surf school in Portugal in 1998.
Years ago she moved to Ericeira to be able to surf the best waves of Europe every day. She continues training girls for competition.
As a natural sequence of a dedicated surfing career she always had a strong affection for big waves. As the first and only Portuguese surfer girl she decided to challenge tow-in surfing, and was nominated for the Billabong XXL Awards.
