I'm Adriana... I am a Brazilian Jersey girl, an imperfect mom of 2 young adults, and a relentless dreamer who still wants to change the world.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a dreamer. When I was still a child living in Brazil, I used to tell my mother that I was going to live in America one day. We both had no idea that it would become true many years later. I left my parents house to move to the United States when I was 21 years old. It was my first time away from my family. The process of adjusting to a new life was difficult but soon enough this country became my home. It was here where I met my husband, had my kids, and accomplished so many other dreams.
I worked as a Real Estate salesperson and a Broker of Record business owner for over 10 years until the 2007 financial crisis. I went from an “entrepreneur” to a part time bank teller. At the banking center, I worked in many different roles until becoming an assistant manager. I learned the importance of team work, the richness of diversity and the need of inclusion. It made me a better person.
When my kids reached the infamous “teenager years” I left my career to become a full-time mom; one of the best decisions I ever made. I really enjoy the perks of motherhood, the challenges of being a woman and the benefits of resilience. As a strong advocate in my community, I have learned that there is
power in unity when it’s surrounded by love. For over 17 years I volunteered as a counselor, leading a group of women on a weekly basis, supporting them through group coaching and prayer support.
Since 2017, Just Adriana became a wellness center designed to help others to find themselves and to live their best life
now. Together with my team, we strongly believe that it is never too early or too late to develop a balanced and mentally healthy life.
