Marilia is originally from Salvador Brazil, where she has a large and wonderful family.  In spite of her time away from Brazil and the frenetic pace of her husband's world, Marilia continues to move at the graceful pace of a Bahaina, the traditional women of Bahia, Brazil.  Marilia met Frank in 1998 when Frank sailed into Salvador as part of a big event that was in part organized by some friends of Marilia's sister Magaly.  Marilia moved to Menlo Park, California with her son Joao to start a new life together with Frank following their marriage in 2003.  They moved around a bit before landing in Mill Valley, the place they now call home.  Marilia spends most of her time thinking of others while staying healthy in body and mind.  She has a passion for design and is an artist in so many ways.  She is her husban's best friend.
