Start of Fitness Journey

Born and raised in Brasilia, Brazil, Sue wasn’t very athletic growing up as a teenager. She lived a very unhealthy lifestyle and soon found herself overweight.

At this point, Sue became unhappy with her body – she knew that she had to make a change.

It wasn’t long until she embarked on her fitness journey, training rigorously 5 days a week and following a strict diet to attain her dream physique. At the age of 19, Sue began transforming her body.

First Competition

Sue made serious progress over the next 9 years, losing an impressive 46 pounds. She was proud of her development and wanted to take her interest in fitness further.

At the age of 28, Sue made the big decision to enter a Fitness Competition – the 2013 South Brazilian Bodybuilding Championships as a Wellness-Fitness Athlete.

Although she didn’t win, Sue placed 4th out of 42 participants. This experience motivated her to step up her game and focus on becoming a professional fitness athlete.



Sue’s transformation.

Modelling and Move to America

Sue was approached by a photographer to become a model after her debut show. She was an instant hit and became a celebrity in Brazil, gaining even more exposure in the industry.

It wasn’t long until Sue decided to further her career, risking everything by moving to the Miami, America.

Social Media Star

After years of intense training and hard work, Sue succeeded in sculpting one of the greatest female physiques in the world.
