ENTREPRENEURSHIP

As a little girl, I was obsessed with turning ideas into reality. At age seven, I wrote a book on how to build a treehouse, full of step-by-step instructions and measurements. I then built the treehouse and started a club for all of the kids in my neighborhood. This was one of a hundred ideas I turned into projects.

I wrote a lot in my spare time. My room was full of boxes, and my boxes were full of composition notebooks. I would write short stories about my family, the science behind cloud formations and the cosmos, or the meaning behind my dreams. It didn't matter the topic, I just had to keep writing, and creating!

That characteristic followed me throughout my entire life. At age fifteen, I co-founded Ambiance Matchmaking out of a need to create a company. This has been the most challenging and rewarding experience in my life.

I have been involved in every aspect of the company since its founding in 2002. In 2007, I started teaching myself web design and SEO out of the company’s need for a digital overhaul. I was immediately enthralled with the nature of the work. Creative yet logical, artistic yet scientific. I began my work as a self-titled Creative Director with a focus on digital marketing and haven’t looked back since.

For the last seventeen years, I helped build Ambiance from a small boutique to an international company with locations in three countries and eleven cities. We work on local, national, and international levels, with a primary focus on specific regions, including the United States, Mexico, and the United Kingdom. I am solely responsible for the company's website design, content creation, and SEO. It is a dream to create on a daily basis.

In 2017, I cofounded Caravana Bike. We offer cycling tours and triathlon training camps in Puerto Vallarta.

Caravana Bike started as a blog documenting our world travels “on two wheels.” In 2017, we traveled the Yucatan and Chiapas for one month on motorcycle. In 2018, we traveled the whole country of Spain on bicycle. In 2019, we made the decision to promote cycling and triathlon training. We bought a 12 passenger van, installed the best bike rack system we could find, and turned Caravana Bike into a cycling tour and training camp.

I am also the Creative Director for Chas Photography, a destination wedding photography company based in Puerto Vallarta.

We use photojournalism to capture each couple’s wedding story. We love candid photography; catching a moment so real, so raw, so intense, so fragile, that you will be able to still feel it years later while looking at a single photo. That is what we strive for, photography that holds emotion for a lifetime.

TRIATHLON

I compete in 70.3 Triathlons in Mexico and around the world. My goal is to reach my highest potential as a triathlete using Ayurvedic and holistic methods. I love connecting the dots between modern medicine and ancient wisdom and applying my research to my own training. You can find my research and training methods on Caravana Bike Triathlon Training Camps.

AYURVEDA

I am an Ayurveda Practitioner. I believe that true health cannot be achieved until the mind, body, and spirit are in balance. Ayurveda is an ancient healing system originating 5,000 years ago when people were more connected to the earth and its elements. I want to bring this form of holistic healing back into our teachings today. I write about using Ayurvedic methods in romantic relationships, endurance sports, and in reaching your highest self.
