*I have a hard time "classifying" myself, but I will try my best*

I am a psychologist specialized in behavioral neurophysiology and child development, living in Guatemala City.

Mother, wife, avid reader, curious writer and education enthusiast. My passion has always been art, especially dance. Not just as something beautiful to watch and/or a commercial/competitive thing to do, but as a way of expressing ourselves and transforming our minds and lives through it. That's why I work as the director of my dance studio: "Arte Proyecto". Luckily, the newest reasearch in science has discovered the undeniable relationship between movement and the brain, which fascinates me and guides my in my investigation workflow.

Having been in the arts world for more than 25 years, I enjoy the backstage side of dance and art productions. Seeing and helping putting together all the pieces that make something ignites my creative spirit.

My journey as a mother has also played an enormous role on how I perceive life, and how I want to impact the world and my community. That is why I created my blog "Sin Manual de Instrucciones", where I write about motherhood and everyting in between. We look to support other mothers in our community, and to provide quality content about parenthood. Being a mother is far from "just raising children", but more about guiding the future generations who will shape our world.
