Accolades: Undefeated in the duet and trio events at every competition from 1999 – 2002, undefeated in the solo event, tying for first for the National Title in 2002, member of three National Championship team routines and three overall National Titles (12 Event National Championship titles total), inducted into the Ohio State Hall of Fame in 2009, represented Brazil in the 1999 and 2003 Panamerican Games and in the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Games.

Advice to Buckeyes: “College was the best time of my life in that I had complete freedom to do and explore what my heart felt. Maybe it’s the artist in me, but I was so happy to be able to learn so many different things at an amazing school with such unique courses all while being part of the best collegiate team in the United States. The trips we took as a team have stayed in my heart, as well. Enjoy every moment of college and don’t sweat the small stuff! Life is beautiful and short and you are all lucky to have this opportunity to get an amazing education at such a fulfilling place. I love OSU!”

Favorite memory: Receiving a perfect 10 in trio, the 2002 National Championship where she moved from 2nd in prelims in solo to a tied 1st place final

Her favorite spot on campus: “The Wexner Center for the Arts. I went to so many exhibitions and movie series there. It was a deeply special place to me and my development as an artist.”
