I am from the lands of Acapulco, Guerrero in Mexico, and was raised in the unceded territory of Kumeyaay lands (San Diego, CA).

I walk and bring my lived experiences as an undocumented mujer with a background in grassroots organizing, youth leadership development, immigrant education, and ancestral ceremonial knowledge.

My journey to transformative healing revealed itself at the age of 17 when I joined my first teachers on a pilgrimage to the border in San Ysidro, CA. That day, my body remembered the fear and anger when Immigration Customs Enforcement invaded my home and detained my mother. That day, I learned to transmute fear and anger into power and resiliency. Ever since, I recognized the emotions, thoughts, and beliefs that manifest in my body and the power I carry to transform and heal within.

Now, my commitment is to co-create sacred and safe spaces for youth to process their mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health. It is one way I pay forward the blessings invested in me.

YOUTH- CENTERED

I share the lessons learned in the youth development field and explore how to better integrate youth voice in organizations' strategic planning.

I have experience providing academic guidance to undocumented students, supporting the leadership development of young people through skill-building, and consulting on youth development programs.

I bring with me skills in designing and developing youth-centered leadership programs, training, workshops, outreach, and advocacy.

HEALING- CENTERED

I am an ICF certified healing-centered community coach and I continue to heal and learn from powerful teachers and spaces.

I completed Grandmother Flordemayo Healing Training  Course, Healing Justice: Holistic Self-Care for Change Makers and am guided by spiritual and healing teachers.

I experience healing in a spiral- aware that my emotions, thoughts, and beliefs are relived in different situations.

I step into opportunities to share my experience, my healing, and my leadership journey.
