In Sao Paulo, Brazil, Elisabete began her professional career in Human Resources with Banco Boavista, B.A. where she spent ten years. She then became a serial entrepreneur in Brazil where she had eleven businesses prior to immigrating to the US in 1994.
The biggest challenge in her transition to the U.S. was not only to learn the language, but to adapt to the vastly different culture, which led to her mission to help people who speak different languages to communicate and culturally connect with each other. As an expert in multicultural communications, she has acted as a cultural consultant for multilingual projects targeting various ethnic communities in the U.S. and abroad for almost three decades.
Over the course of her career, Elisabete has established a reputation as a diversity and inclusion champion, a passionate leader, and has built lasting business and personal relationships through her personable and caring approach to all interactions.
