Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.

I fell in love with neurology during medical school in Campinas, Brazil, where I began to understand how important our brain function is to coordinate our bodies, to give us consciousness and the ability to drive our life.
I have a special interest in epilepsy, which comes from working with newborns and infants with infantile spasms and seizures. After I completed my residency in Brazil, I followed children with epilepsy during the first year of life.
In 1994, after four years as a pediatric neurologist at the university hospital in Campinas, I came to the U.S. for further study about pediatric epilepsy. In particular, I wanted to learn about using PET scans to pinpoint the area where a patient's seizures originate. I met my husband here and decided to stay.
We feel so fortunate to be raising our two daughters in Seattle, where we have access to all the city offers, while also being close to nature. Nature refreshes and empowers me. Our family loves hiking at Mt. Rainier and are working to reach Camp Muir one day. We love to travel around the U.S. and beyond. In fact, we have a goal to visit every national park in the U.S.
I also enjoy cooking traditional Brazilian dishes like feijoada (a stew with meat and beans) and brigadeiro (a delicious sweet confection). If you ever travel to Brazil, you must try these specialties!
I tell my children: You need your heart, but you also need your brain. So, exercise it to keep it healthy.
I love working with children. They are fighters and bring so much hope to everyone around them. I believe in partnering with parents to provide their children with tools to succeed. These tools might be medications and therapies for pediatric neurological conditions. But, most important of all: hope and love.
