ABOUT > Founder

Creator of the Optimism Coaching© method to enhance productivity, motivation and happiness.

The human being must know each other in order to understand and be able to take charge of his being.

I worked for 20 years as a simultaneous interpreter of the highest order, translating for Nobel laureates, prestigious political leaders and the greatest experts in all fields, which resulted in my acquiring a very wide and deep knowledge base. Since then, I continued expanding my professional career and widening my academic learning in combination with an intense and rich personal life. I then developed Humanology, Personal Essence and Optimism Coaching. This discipline and its methods and tools aim at helping human beings feel happier, no matter what happiness means to each of them or which pathway they choose to pursue it. 

My career as a humanologist began when I lost my characteristic optimism after having two car accidents that led me to a wheelchair and acute, chronic pain.  Refusing to just accept that situation, and choosing to be happy again, I developed the Optimism Coaching© method and wrote my first book, The Optimist in You. Others started using my materials and reporting very positive results in their lives, which motivated me to continue studying and learning many other methods, techniques and tools such as life coaching.

I am the proud mother of two wonderful children and an energetic and multi-faceted professional who defines herself as a humanologist. I’ve lived in the United States, Germany, Spain, France, Poland, Russia, Switzerland and Panama and can communicate in several languages. I also taught both adults and children for 15 years, which granted me the tools I needed to share my knowledge effectively. I trained as a Life coach but also studied NLP, Ho’oponopono, Quantum Touch, The Work, Radical Forgiveness and Empathy among many others. I am the author of two blogs, and several books: The Optimist in You; Kariboo, a bilingual book for children who were left behind by their parents for whatever reason; What Story do You Tell Yourself? a personal development book that helps human beings understand what type of life they’re choosing to live, and Coaching for You, a handbook containing a selection of life coaching tools.
