Biography

Fernanda is Brazilian but lives in a spanish town of 40 inhabitants in the Pyrenees. With an ardent love for nature, Fernanda is now an ultra runner.

With only eight years old Fernanda began to compete and travel the world through Olympic Gymnastic. Two years later, she was training in the US. She then became a capoeira fighter, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu champion and then started racing trail running. At age 23, he ran international expeditions of 600 kilometers no stop (kayak, mountain bike, mountain running), multi-sport (snowboarding, mountain bike, downhill, road bike), triathlon and mountain marathon to become an athlete of great endurance.

In her professional life, Fernanda worked as an environmental lawyer and also as an environmental instructor at the NGO Outward Bound International. Thus, her love for nature is not limited to her experiences through her sport, but also in helping others to discover and protect our natural environment. She is also a sports nutritionist.

Her philosophy of life is simple: “… move positive”.
