I am blessed to serve Providence Presbyterian Church as a Ministry Intern. As a Granddaughter and a daughter of Presbyterian Pastors I have wonderful vivid memories of my childhood and youth years participating in church activities in my home church in Brazil. I have been blessed to have faithful parents; Dr. Rev. Eudoxio Santos and Dra Lucia Santos; that raised my brother, Dr. Andre Santos, and I with the Truth and involved at church activities such as Sunday school, Vacation Bible School, family nights, games times, summer retreats and mission work. I grow up in one of adjacent houses of a Presbyterian Hospital founded by an American Missionary Physician; our life was based in the Hospital and Church Mission. In 1997 we moved to USA to reestablish a connection between Brazilian and USA Presbyterian Churches. The result of that year can be described with the Bible verse found in Ephesians 3:20 “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurable more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.” (NIV) I have three wonderful loving children: Julia, Bia (Beatriz) and AJ (7, 6 and 3 years old). They are the expression of God’s love in my life.
I am a physician; I did my Medical school and specialized in Occupational Medicine. I believe that not only our physical bodies need healing but also our souls. I am doing a Master of Divinity and responding to what God has called me first.
In my free time I love to swim with the kids and make new connections in the Island. We are blessed to be surrounded by God’s amazing creation. We love the Lowcountry and its life style. My family and I are very grateful for all that God has done in our life and the opportunity to serve one another for His glory.
