Experiência Profissional

Eu sempre tive certeza que meu futuro seria lidar com pessoas, acho que isso está muito ligado à minha personalidade. Eu tenho uma certa sensibilidade para compreender e “sacar” o que cada pessoa precisa e isso me faz entender as dificuldades e objetivos de cada um, o que sempre foi importante e me ajudou nos meus atendimentos como nutricionista.

Assim que me formei em nutrição pela Universidade São Camilo, fui convidada para trabalhar com um dos médicos mais conceituados do Brasil (Prof. Dr. Roberto Kalil Filho), com quem trabalhei por toda minha carreira até minha vinda para os EUA e ainda é minha base para consultas quando estou no Brasil. Ao longo da minha carreira, desenvolvi algumas parcerias com outros grandes médicos, nutricionistas e outros profissionais da saúde. Felizmente, a idéia de uma equipe multidisciplinar está ficando cada vez mais forte. A maioria dos médicos possuem um conhecimento vago sobre nutrição e, por isso, a necessidade dessa parceria é fundamental para conseguir chegar na raiz do problema do paciente.

Também trabalhei como nutricionista voluntária no Hospital das Clínicas de São Paulo, no setor de obesidade, orientando pacientes que foram submetidos à cirurgia bariátrica. Posso dizer que foi uma das minhas melhores experiências profissionais até agora. Tive a oportunidade de acompanhar e atender inúmeros casos clínicos com grandes médicos e professores feras do HC, além de ter sido uma grande oportunidade de ampliar o meu conhecimento e entender que a dificuldade com a alimentação vai além de escolhas erradas, mas da falta de conhecimento e educação, poder aquisitivo e estilo de vida.

Antes de me mudar para a California meu trabalho no Brasil como nutricionista era muito intenso e me consumia quase todo o tempo nos consultórios. Portanto, a idéia de desenvolver um blog era praticamente inviável, mas sempre foi um sonho para poder ilustrar melhor toda a teoria que muitas vezes era difícil passar apenas em consulta.

Professional Experience

I was always sure that my future would be to deal with people, I think this has a lot to do with my personality. I have a certain sensitivity to understand and “get” what each person needs and it makes me understand the difficulties and objectives of each of my friends, family and patients.

As soon as I graduated as a nutritionist, I was invited to work with one of the most respected doctors of Brazil (Dr. Roberto Kalil Filho), with whom I worked for my entire career until I came to the USA. Throughout my career, I have developed some partnerships with other doctors, nutritionists and health professionals. In Brazil, the idea of a multidisciplinary team is getting stronger. Most doctors have a very vague knowledge about nutrition and therefore the need for this partnership is crucial in order to reach the root of the patient’s problem.

I also worked as a volunteer nutritionist at the Hospital das Clinicas de São Paulo, in the obesity sector, guiding patients who underwent bariatric surgery. I can say that it was one of my best professional experiences so far. I had the opportunity to follow and meet numerous clinical cases with great doctors and great teachers, and it was a great opportunity to expand my knowledge and understand that the difficulty with dieting is not only related to bad choices, but also to the lack of knowledge, purchasing power and lifestyle.

Before I moved to California, my work as a nutritionist in Brazil was very intense and consumed most of my time in clinics. Therefore, the idea of developing a blog was practically impossible, though it was always a dream.
