I was born and raised in Colombia and have lived in New York City for the past 12+ years. I've worked as a Birth Doula for 5 years and am co-founder of Brilliant Bodies and CYCLES + SEX.

I live in Brooklyn with my daughter Maya and my husband Roger. 

I am a regular contributor to MindBodyGreen and WellRounded NY. My work has been featured on multiple media outlets including Newsweek,  Refinery29, Well+Good and Business Insider.

TRAINING

I trained with Debra Pascali-Bonaro and I'm a DONA International Certified Birth Doula (CD (DONA)). I am also a Certified Breastfeeding Counselor and have an adult/child/infant CPR/AED/Choking Certification through the American Heart Association Heartsaver, and in Neonatal Resuscitation with Karen Strange. 

I am also a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. I am a member of the International Association of Health Coaches.  

From my past life I have a Bachelors Degree in Literature and post-graduate studies in Translation & Interpretation.
