Welcome to my blog! My name is Simone and I am so happy you are here.

I am originally from Brasilia, the capital of Brazil. I have lived in the United States since 1998. Yes, most of my adult life has been in Atlanta, Georgia. I grew up in a family where education and mindfulness were the essence of everything I did. I am the oldest of five girls. Yes, five girls!!!! I grew up in a low-middle class household where my parents gave me the amazing gift of education. They used to say that education was the only thing no one could take away from me. They were right! From an early age I studied English with my dad. Lucky me, he was an English teacher. So, if you are reading this, I have to thank my dad. I also speak Spanish, French and I can order food in German. How about that? ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyways, all the education I got in Brazil brought me to the U.S. where I got a bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems. I confess that I did not love my degree but I am grateful for it today. During the day I work in the digital space in one of the largest telecommunications & media companies in the world. During my personal time I devote my time to my three wonderful kids, practicing and teaching yoga. My kids and I love rock climbing, traveling and being outside. I am at a phase in my life where I love learning, reading, doing yoga, and meditating.

In 2020, right before Covid-19 hit, I started a 200hr yoga teacher training. The course lasted all year and I will never forget that I became a yoga teacher during the biggest pandemic we have ever experienced. Yoga teacher training was a life-saver. Literally. As soon as I finished the training in November of 2020, I began teaching my co-workers to help them deal with stress and anxiety. I fell in love with teaching and seeing that I could help others feel better and connect with a side of themselves they did not know. I fell in love! I am currently finishing another 300 hours of yoga teacher training and, by the end of 2022, I will be a RYT 500 yoga teacher.

I never imagined being where I am today. When I started Cool N Chic this was a blog about being cool in your own way. It still is. Now, however, being cool in your own way means way more than just who you think you are. It means being your authentic self and knowing your true nature. The combination of digital expertise with mindfulness has allowed me to become a mindful leader. It has been a very interesting combination. I now teach how to use the online space and not allow it to use you. Here at Cool N Chic I have a lot of fun but I learn a lot, too. I am always expanding my knowledge and my spirit so I can pass all that goodness and wisdom onto you and those who attend my workshops or become a member of nPowered

I am the luckiest person alive and I have had the opportunity to experience so much professionally and personally. I love people and I love the whole learning/teaching combo. I believe in learning something new every day and I try my best to hold myself to this. Here I share my experiences, my thoughts and the meaningful conversations I have with amazing people from all kinds of backgrounds. 

I cannot wait to e-meet you and I hope you find something that speaks to you here or in one of Cool N Chic’s social platforms. The motto here is be fearlessly authentic! Let’s be just that.

Much love,
