Born in Spain but raised in Chile and the United States, she moved to Chicago with her family at age 35 to pursue a longtime dream of giving her children an international experience where they could learn about other cultures, races and languages.

As a world citizen, she has tried to advocate for multilingual and multicultural families through her kids’ school district, bringing awareness and giving a voice to those who are navigating the system without always being seen.
