Giovanna has worked with special needs children and their families in her home country of Brazil, as well as in Nicaragua, where she lived for 6 years. Working as an interventionist for the NICH program has been a great opportunity to integrate what she’s passionate about: human rights, diversity and inclusion.
In her free time, Gio enjoys watching series in the company of her husband and their cat. She loves music, dancing, and reading. She also considers herself a foodie, which is one big reason she loves Portland.
