Nasci em Ermesinde, uma cidade perto do Porto. Em 1989 vim estudar para a UM em Braga e fiz o curso de Ensino de Biologia e Geologia. Trabalhei como professora durante 20 anos. Um trabalho muito gratificante, mas também desgastante, pelo que em 2014, decisão tomada com o apoio do meu marido, decidi abandonar o ensino. Abrimos, com a ajuda de uma amiga, o Hibiscus, um restaurante vegetariano em Braga. Algum tempo depois abrimos a primeira loja de produtos Bio a granel da região norte, a Hibiscus loja Bio. Em 2017 vendemos o restaurante e a loja, que felizmente continuam a funcionar, e compramos esta quinta em Rossas, Vieira do Minho, Lugar de Sta. Marta. Era o nosso sonho e era neste ambiente rural que queríamos que os nossos filhos crescessem. Demos-lhe o nome de Hippie Garden só pela piada de termos passado de ratos da cidade a ratos do campo! E aqui estamos! Não somos grandes agricultores, estamos a aprender muito todos os dias, mas já vamos conseguindo cultivar muito do que comemos. Ocupamo-nos a estudar com os filhos e a cuidar da quinta. Gostamos muito de conviver e de partilhar o nosso dia a dia, por isso decidimos alugar a parte de baixo da casa que recuperamos e temos um quarto suite dentro de casa que quando está desocupado também alugamos. Estamos muito felizes com as nossas escolhas e com a grande mudança que fizemos nas nossas vidas. Nem tudo são rosas, mas as rosas também têm espinhos e a vida no campo também tem alguns, mas na primavera só conseguimos ver as lindas flores e cheirar o perfume que exalam!
