I graduated in 1985 with a Bachelor’s Degree in the Teaching of Physical Education at the National Autonomous University in Heredia. I was a Volleyball player for more than 20 years, National Champion, Central American Champion and Captain of the National Team of Costa Rica.
I began teaching in 1986 at the Liceo de Coronado working as a secondary level teacher and as a coach of the Women's Volleyball team. From there, I moved to teach young women in secondary school at the Colegio Monterrey, where I was also the coach of the volleyball team.
In my free time I enjoy cooking, going to the beach, gardening, and going to the gym and weekends I enjoy running outdoors with my dog Tea. I live in Sarchi Sur with my husband; we have a 21 year old daughter who plays volleyball with the University of Minnesota Crookston.
