I consider myself fortunate having been born in Mallorca in 1979, to liberal parents who provided me with a conscientious and natural childhood in the countryside.
If I told you that until I was 14, we lived without a phone and with oil lamps…would you believe it?
Back in those days, things where different without the technological spread, and here I am now, taking advantage of all the benefits that 21st century technology has brought to us.

2000s: Freedom and Happiness
I started working very young, at 18 I became independent, got my driver’s license, studied a Higher Degree in International Commerce and owned my first mobile phone.
I’m one of those people who didn’t go to college because since I was a little girl I felt like I didn’t fit into the system of studying something for several years and then dedicate myself to become that for the rest of my life.
At the labour level I started in hospitality, continued as director’s secretary in a company dedicated to the nautical sector and from there I moved on to the fantastic summer of 2004, in which I was in sabbatical mode and, by the magic of life, ended up working as a production assistant in the production of a movie.
I was enticed by the atmosphere and the very high work rate and in autumn of that year I took on a job as an outdoor location scout in the premier local production company, which gave me the opportunity to go to New York to do a film director’s course. I was hired for 2 years and when I felt ready I jumped into the freelance world and devoted myself to it until 2010.
At that time I had the opportunity to cross the Atlantic on several occasions and get to know Venezuela, Brazil and Costa Rica.
2010s: Freedom vs Family
On the road of the wonderful world of cinema I met my life partner. Thanks to him falling in love with a corner in the family farm, we gathered the necessary forces to rehabilitate a lost house in the forest in an organic and respectful way.
The decade has been very intense. I admire the ability of the human being to withstand so many nights, years, of broken sleep and high demand at all levels.
I am proud to have been able to devote my time to our three children throughout their early childhood. I have been able to afford to raise them respecting their rhythm in a safe and natural environment, with grandparents very close.
In this period I have been carrying out several jobs more or less compatible with motherhood: tourist rental, in charge of sales for the German market in a production company and coordination of events and occasional shoots.

The wonderful 20s
During the summer of 2019 I get to the point where the components of our family of five begin to become more independent and I feel that the time to listen to the need to perform again professionally has arrived.
Researching alternatives to continue working from home I came across the term Digital Knowmad, with which I could identify. From there I came to Virtual Assistance, entered Knowmada Collaboration, the online school for Virtual Assistants, and thanks to the push of the mentoring from Esther Mayor and my membership of Titanes Warpress, I have been developing this, my website, the project that will finish materializing in 2020.
The traditional work model; commuting to the workplace and clocking-in for 40 hours a week under the shadow of a boss, definitely not an option.
Taking advantage of my resilience, order, transparency, seriousness, square head and polyglot background I decide to specialize in offering services as Virtual Assistant and Linguistic Mediator.
