I grew up bilingual, bicultural in Mexico City, Mexico.
At 16 I decided to be part of the solution rather than problem, and to learn whatever I needed to learn to live that.
At 18, I realized that my life needed to be about service and contribution, and that that would probably look different than traditional employment.
At 21 I began following the steps in the Financial Integrity Program detailed in Your Money or Your Life by Vicki Robin & Joe Dominguez, which taught me how to be very clear with money.
By 27 I had enough savings to -while living simply- embark on a seven-year self-directed period of intensive research and learning.
It was during this time that I:
became a Certified Trainer in Nonviolent Communication
acquired my Certificate in Permaculture Design
took many classes with Wilderness Awareness School
learned meditation by taking courses
researched and visited intentional communities and learning centers
studied Dynamic Facilitation and conflict resolution
was given permission to teach the 8-Shields Model
immersed myself in Integral Theory
conducted a search for our dream property, which we bought in 2002
served in various volunteer leadership positions, gaining valuable skills along the way.
Since then my passion has been to work with people and organizations who are committed not only to their own growth and development, but also to leaving the world a better place than they found it.
