Back Story

Born in Gudalajara, Mexico and raised in California, I grew up surrounded by a multicultural environment, and in a context in which success is celebrated. I learned to speak Spanish and English at the same time, making me a bilingual speaker who understands the challenges that those non-native speakers face and feeling more like a citizen of the world rather than having a sense of belonging to a specific country or culture. 


I've been called master in her knowledge, great communicator, a leader in execution, owner of her ideals, and an "angel". 

I have a soft spot for plants, cat videos, hiking, coffee, collecting quartz and minerals, deep conversations and in finding meaning and purpose in almost every situation.


As a public speaking coach, I draw upon my background as Secretary of Education in a Toastmasters club at Hewlett Packard Enterprise Guadalajara during two and a half years, my research in psychology, a professional life coach certification, eight years of experience as a coach, entrepreneur, and teacher. 

I teach executives, nonprofit leaders, and women on the rise how to get standing ovations. 

As founder of Intelligent Public Speaking in Guadalajara and as a freelance in Preply, I produced custom speeches and corporate videos, I have conducted business workshops, and organized business networking events.

At ITESO, Universidad Jesuita de Guadalajara, I received a Bachelor in Laws, but my real education happened in my journey pursuing my career as a life coach. I also served as a financial analyst and business consultant for Hewlett Packard, and as a partner in Udelive.

Since ITESO, I've studied coaching, persuasive communication, human nature, high performance, the Hermetic philosophy, Reiki energy healing, and Vedic tantric numerology. 

My work as a public speaking coach braids together the many strands of my experience and training in Toastmasters and high-performance coaching. There’s nothing I love more than helping a leader stand tall at the front of the room or on their laptop as they inspire, educate and transform an audience. For your free consult, email me.
