Ferreira began playing volleyball at age ten and moved from Itajuba to Sao Paulo, Brazil, to compete for the Brazilian Junior National Team by the age of 15. She was promoted to Professional Level competition the following year, and began playing professionally in Belgium at the age of 20.
The following year, Ferreira transferred to Barton C.C. and began playing professionally in the U.S. She led her team to a Junior College National Championship and was named All-American and National Championship MVP as a freshman. After transferring to Concordia University (Irvine, CA), she became an AVCA NAIA All-American, and was named both the 2004 NAIA Tournament MVP and Player of the Year after taking the Eagles to the National Championship match. Concordia had previously recorded just one winning season in school history prior to 2004.
