Over the years, I have moved homes 7 times, lived in 5 countries and traveled the world extensively. I have always been a seeker of new challenges and goals. The places I have seen, my interaction with people from diverse cultural backgrounds, and the new flavours I have tried, have deeply influenced me and fueled my career as a health, marketing, and food specialist and professional.
My background in health comes from my degree in Nutrition and Food Science and my Master’s Degree in Science, focused on Global Health from the University of Glasgow in Scotland. The road has been long but very rewarding and fun!
Some of my first professional experiences in the world of wellness started when I provided nutrition education courses to elite gymnasts at the Mexican Olympic Committee, and working at childhood nutrition events with companies such as Ferrero Rocher and some interviews for Reforma, one of the top newspapers in Mexico.
My first encounter with health marketing occurred at Gruma, a transnational company and leader in the corn and tortilla market worldwide. I was an integral part of the marketing, research and development team, providing support at a corporate level to strategic projects in other regions: Latin America, Europe, Asia & Oceania and focused on the conceptualization, development and launch of new products and services to these consumer markets.
My interest in health communication didn’t end there, as I then decided to focus my master thesis on developing a validation tool for content analysis in nutrition media for the 40 most influential newspapers in the UK at the Herald Times in Scotland.
The road from there took me to the Caribbean where I co-founded Midst-Of-It, a fitness, food, and travel blog, and then I became the food expert for XtremeFoodies.TV one of the largest digital food networks in the world. From here, I joined BodyHoliday, one of the top wellness resorts in the world and managed their online content with a focus in health.
