I am a Human Resources and Strategy professional with 2,5 years of experience in consulting firms, being involved in several projects for the banking, high-tech, energy, public administration, cosmetics, consumption goods and pharmaceutical sectors.

Throughout my professional experience, I have demonstrated strong orientation towards results, flexibility and teamwork competencies. I proactively look for the solutions that best fit my client’s needs (either internal or external clients).

Furthermore, my academic background has taught me how to adapt and work with different cultures. I prize the opportunity to learn different views, methodologies and tools that can help me improve as a professional.


I am interested in pursing a career focused in the internal organization of the structure and human resources of a company, so as to ensure the successful implementation of its corporate strategy. Taking into account my previous professional experience, I feel that I can make a positive contribution to any Internal Consulting department from any major private organization.
