As the child of an Italian mother and Lebanese-Brazilian father and born in the U.S., Paola is a living, breathing cocktail of multiculturalism. She speaks Brazilian Portuguese, German, English, Italian, French, and pretty good Spanish. It’s no surprise then that she enjoys handling multilingual projects.
Paola grew up and studied in São Paulo before eventually coming to Europe. She joined Leinhäuser Language Services in 2016 and has been livening up our offices with her vibrant, upbeat personality ever since. If you don’t find her behind her desk, it’s simply because she’s happily and patiently providing colleagues with advice and assistance. Considering the closeness and popularity she enjoys among so many of her colleagues, you’d think she’d been around a lot longer, too.
In her role as an account manager, Paola complements the team with a disciplined and focused approach to her work — no doubt gained from her experience as a capoeira instructor, a position that calls on her to combine elements of dance, acrobatics and music. In both jobs she demonstrates quick, complex maneuvers, speed and a wide variety of techniques. She’s already converted her two sons and her husband into avid capoeiristas; it’s only a matter of time for us as well.
