Claudia began her career in immigration back home, working with a Canadian immigration lawyer. Her goal was to help people immigrate to Canada so they could enjoy a better life. This gave her the idea of doing the same for herself. She immigrated to Canada thinking that she might not be able to continue in the same field, and was happy to discover there was still a need for her services.

Soon after having arrived in Canada, she started working with a senior Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant for two years before joining our team at Ferreira-Wells Immigration in 2006. Claudia enjoys being able to make people happy by helping them reunite with their beloved ones, listening to their tales of hardship, giving them advice and in the end, being an integral part in their journey to Canada.

On a personal level, Claudia has a cooking blog and is writing a cookbook sharing her love for cooking and baking. Claudia believes she is very fortunate to have a large, wonderful family back home, and a great and supportive husband and young son in Canada.

We benefitted from the detail and care put into our application and file by Claudia and Gus. No objective person could dismiss it as anything less than a rock-solid file.
