Meet your facilitators

Born in Miami as the daughter of Cuban-Greek immigrants, I witnessed early on the courage and resilience needed to go after a better life. I packed those lessons with me when I migrated to Barcelona on a solo one-way ticket. Along my journey, I took on many passion-lead jobs including small-business owner, jeweler, photographer, voice-over artist, and co-founder of an e-learning SaaS platform.

After seven years of building my career and community abroad, I took on my next adventure moving to San Francisco to open Typeform’s first US office. While in the US, I have held leadership roles in two hyper-growth tech startups where I built and operationalized teams from scratch.

As an alumni of the original cohort of The Grand Quest, I benefited from its community and curriculum when pivoting my career (yet again) and transitioning to a working mamá bear.

I've always been a romantic, creative, and intensely curious person. As an immigrant, I wanted more than anything to "fit in" and "make it" in the United States. Through The Grand Quest, I got back to my roots and started exploring what an authentic life looks like. I'm still on that journey!

I've spent the last decade working in technology as a marketing and product management leader at Microsoft, Dropbox, and Oscar Health. I'm now a leadership coach and facilitator, partnering with incredible leaders who want to achieve big things without forgetting what matters.

I live in New York City with my partner and two pups (Dug and Remy), and we're slowly but surely building a new home in the woods. I love swing dance, jazz, art & architecture, enabling romance, and learning just about anything.
