What People Are Saying

Cindy is passionate, steeped in, and has numerous experiences in both cultures. She speaks and writes Portuguese and English fluently.


Invited to a Brazilian’s house for a gathering? It’s not considered rude to arrive at least 30 minutes late for a dinner and an hour late for a party. You might want to think twice about eating in a meeting or while on foot or in a car in Brazil too. Yes, really, Brazilian and American culture, customs, manners, etiquette, and values do differ.


Cindy enjoys and excels at helping people bridge the cultural gaps, facilitate meetings, negotiate plans, organize events, translate or provide other communications support, as well as make life-changing Brazilian-American connections. Curious if she can help you? Just ask!


Many people are surprised that Portuguese is the national language of Brazil, not Spanish. And when we hear Brazilians say “futbol”, they mean soccer. And contrary to popular belief, the vast majority of travelers enjoy a safe trip to Brazil. More subtly, don’t be surprised to be kissed upon first meeting a Brazilian.

“Since I started working with Cindy, my business and
revenue have expanded 10-fold and is still growing!”
