My name is Jennifer Farias. I am first generation Portuguese/American. My father born in Sao Miguel, Acores and my mother was born in Oliveira do Hospital, Portugal. Both came here at a young age where they met, got married and had 3 beautiful girls. They raised their family in Providence, RI and currently reside in the same home for over 30 years. Being of Portuguese descent, my parents wanted to continue to raise us with the culture as well as the language. Having put us 3 girls in Portuguese school they felt it was important for us to learn the history, language as well as learning to read and write in Portuguese. With this background, I am now fluent in Portuguese and Spanish. Now, as a mother myself I know the importance of keeping the culture alive. My pride and joy, Ava, now 9 yrs old, is a scholar at the International Charter School in Pawtucket, RI, a dual language charter school, where the curriculum is taught in Portuguese and English. Ava loves soccer and Acrobats. Both keep her and I very busy and active.
I graduated from Bishop Keough Regional High School. Soon after graduation, I attended CCRI which lead me to a career in Dental Assisting. Now, 18 years of being in Dental, I have decided to pursue a career in Real Estate. As a dental assistant, my goal, every day, was to make sure my patients were happy as they left my office. And now in Real Estate, my priority is to make sure my clients are happy with the purchase of their home.
