She set a personal best time of 2:01.28 for the 800 metres at the 2007 Pan American Games, coincidentally in her home city. Tito also competed as part of the women's national sprint team for the 4×400 m relay at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens.
At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, Tito competed for the second time in women's 4×400 m relay, along with her teammates Lucimar Teodoro, Maria Laura Almirão, and Emmily Pinheiro. She ran on the second leg of the second heat, with an individual-split time of 52.60 seconds. Tito and her team finished the relay in sixth place for a total time of 3:30.10, failing to advance into the final.
Few days before the 2009 IAAF World Championships in Berlin, Tito was among the five Brazilian athletes who failed the competition drug test for a banned substance recombinant EPO. She served a two-year suspension by IAAF, making her ineligible to compete for other international events, including the world and national championships.
