After an accident that left her injured, life gave her the chance to become a POUND Pro which helped her recover her strength and confidnece at one of the darkest moments of her life. Throughout it all, she remains a firm beliver that dreams do come true, and it is the inspiration of her daughter and family that push her to continue to do the work to be a better version of herself every time a new day dawns. When she is in a POUND class, she feels like a rockstar (free, happy, confident, and unique) and that’s why she feels that everyone deserves to experience the magic of POUND in their lives!

If you could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be?  

I’d love to have dinner with Jesus. I have so many questions to ask Him. 😊

What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?  

Becoming a ‘working mom’ in the middle of a pandemic and in a world that doesn’t understand yet that we as women can balance successfully our personal and professional lives.

If you could choose your own rockstar nickname, what would it be?  


What’s the first thing you do when you get home from a trip?  

Take a shower and rest a little bit, eating something delicious and watching TV at my favorite sofa. 

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?  

Dream big, trust in yourself and do it with love.

If you had two hours left on earth what would you do?  

I would spend it with my family doing what we love the most, hugging each other and laughing a lot outdoors. Thanking God for allowing me to live in this world.

What activity do you do that makes you feel most like yourself?  

Dancing, singing, POUNDing, listening to good music and learning new things.

Cheek blush, lip gloss and cell phone. Hahaha!

What’s the best thing that ever happened to you?

Becoming a mom and being alive to enjoy this one life I have with the people I love.

Who’s your favorite rockstar (actual or figurative) and why?  

Definitely Freddie Mercury. I admire all the passion and confidence he had for his talent and music. His courage to stand up for his rights and what he believed in.

What’s one thing you’d tell your 13-year-old self?

Don’t be afraid. You don’t need the approval of anyone to make your dreams come true because you are enough and your passion and talent will take you so far if you are disciplined and confident.

Teleportation to be able to visit different places in my country and the world instantly. And the power to speak and understand the different languages of the people living in those places I visit.
