Position: Advisor

The son of teacher parents, I was encouraged from an early age to study and have contact with the various manifestations of art and culture. Like every brasiliense, I am an enthusiast for politics.

I studied Public Policy Management because I understand that the transformation of society necessarily involves good practices in the State-Company-Society relationship. At university, I was involved with several projects, I was a member of research groups, I was part of the management of the DCE Honestino Guimarães as coordinator of the teaching and extension portfolio and participated in a scientific initiation research, where I studied the Brazilian public debt.

It was at Umbelino that I had my first contact with the government relations career, still as an intern. I was able to see up close the work of extremely qualified and dedicated professionals and the feeling is that there was no better way to take my first steps in the area.

After a year as an intern, I was hired and started to integrate the infrastructure nucleus, following the topics of electric energy, tourism and civil aviation.

The combination of a taste for words and History was decisive for his professional choice: he studied Law and Political Science at the same time. Easy decision to make and difficult to carry out. After some stumbling blocks inherent to the restlessness of early adulthood and adjusted course directions, he went through with what he had proposed.

And it was Political Science at UnB that presented the universe of Government Relations. World he joined in 2011, through Umbelino Lôbo. The beginning was as an intern. But he quickly became part of the Legislative Power's follow-up advisory team. It was love at first sight. And it only increases. So much so that it encouraged her to get to know in depth other themes and another universe. Since 2020 he has been studying foreign trade, it is the curiosity associated with the desire to expand knowledge to better exercise the profession he embraced.

These are the daily discoveries experienced in the daily life of the National Congress and the executive branch and the desire to make a difference sharpen the girl's curiosity full of dreams. This is what moves Luisa: dreams and willingness to participate in the construction of a better, fairer and more democratic future for future generations.
