From a young age, Vivian has been fascinated with the legal system. This fascination had turned into a passion when she took her first law course at the Catholic University of Salvador. Since then, she has graduated with a bachelor’s degree in law in Brazil, the Accelerated Paralegal Studies program at Conestoga College, and the Master of Law in Canadian Common Law in Canada. As a Brazilian lawyer, the transition from civil to common law has been a rewarding process. From learning a new language with her arrival in Canada in 2015 to how our Canadian legal system works.

Outside her professional life, she enjoys listening to good music, travelling, hosting friends, cooking, snowmobiling with her husband Brett and spending time with her family and their dog Cooper.
