She finished her Environmental Sciencies degree in 2006, then started a Master in Restoration Ecology meanwhile she made an internship at Ecoescuela El Manzano (Chile), where she designed the zone 5 map of the Ecoescuela.

She is also designing a xeriscape.She´s also teaching permaculture through Ecoherencia, the project she has co-founded.
