I am the oldest daughter of 4 in my family. Since I can remember, I always loved to pretend to be “a mom” and be around children. In 2018, I graduated from high school in Nuestra Señora del Pilar School, in Escazú. That same year, I started “missionary” on different distant places in Costa Rica I went once per year for four years and my heart was touched by every single child that I meet in every place. They each had different histories and different lifestyles, but always the same love and sincerity in each child. I knew that my life was destined to work with children.
I am a passionate soccer player and supporter. I started playing with my neighbors in an official women’s soccer team: Dimas Escazú. I participated in this for 10 years, from U-13 to national women's soccer tournament (first division). Later, I studied physical therapy at Universidad Santa Paula; however, I have not yet graduated. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with the soccer coach license with the Federación Costarricense de Fútbol. I have Licencia C and have worked in different soccer activities: Coach in Dimas Escazú with the U-15 category, “Live Your Goals” from FIFA, first soccer camp from FC Barcelona in Costa Rica at Proyecto Goal, and assistant soccer coach at CDS. I was also a secretary of the Comité Cantonal de Deportes y Recreación de Escazú from 2014 to 2016.
I participated in a variety of courses: CONCACAF Grassroots program, Futbol Base y Alto Rendimiento with Claudio Vivas y Carlos Di Pasqua (C.A.Banfield-Argentina), Sport management course (La Organización Administrativa de las Empresas Públicas Deportivas) and was taught and certificated by Comité Olímpico.
I began working at CDS in 2010 as a substitute, then a classroom teaching assistant. After having my son, I stayed home for some time, and returned to CDS as Early Childhood Office Assistant in 2018. I am thrilled to return to the classroom as a teaching assistant for the 2019-2020 school year!
