Biographical Info I was born in Brazil and raised by entrepreneurs parents. Through out my childhood and until my teenager years I helped my parent out in our family businesses. My mother was a very talented and creative dressmaker, so I learned everything she knew about fashion industry, including the quality of each textile fabrics, fashion trends, lifestyles, and other industry fascinating facts.
I graduated in Accounting and started working at a multinational public accounting firm. I decided to follow my dream and focus my career in public accounting and seeking an opportunity to work abroad. In 2011 I was transferred to Houston, TX. My career in a very male dominated field naturally drove me to bury my passion for fashion, and enticed the curiosity of a different environment. A much more rational and formal environment, requiring a very dynamic lifestyle, with the availability for long work hours.
As life happens, I saw myself in 2019 as a first time mom, debating if I still wanted to focus on that career path when as a mother I have different priorities. It was back then that I decided to look inside me, to find myself again, and then I discover a new version of me. The mother that wants to feel beautiful while juggling all the balls in the air (i.e. household responsibilities, motherhood, career, self-esteem, etc).
I noticed at that time that I was returning to my origins and decided to allow my roots to blossom. I identified a need in the women’s clothing market and an opportunity to impact the lives of many women and make a difference in this world.
That is when I opened my business almost 4 years ago. With the pandemic in 2020 I was forced to put the business activity on hold. Then in 2021 I got pregnant of my second child and did not want to get distracted with anything else. However, in 2022 my heart still burned with the dream of my business’ goals. Therefore, I invested in the rebranding of my business to become GraziAlley, the path, the connection to beauty.
