When I was seven years old, my family and I fled our war-torn home country of Nicaragua when the Sandinista National Liberation Front overthrew the existing Somoza-led government. We left with only the clothes on our backs and moved to an inner city neighborhood in Miami, Florida. Although I was surrounded by a world of crime and drugs, I chose to stay positive and focused. Instead of being depressed by my environment, I was encouraged at the possibility of a better life.
I decided to pursue an advanced education and improve the quality of my life and the life of my family. I chose to pursue statistics because I loved math and at the time, only a small number of women pursued advanced degrees in statistics. Eventually, I earned my PhD in statistics and immediately began a career as a professor. Since then, I have achieved tenure, have written several manuscripts in academic journals, and yet, have still felt that I have something more to contribute to life on this earth.
I came across the Silva method through my martial arts instructor. As one of my requirements to earn my black belt in karate, I needed to attend the Silva Immersion event. Having no knowledge of what the Silva method consisted of but trusting the wisdom of my karate instructor, I attended the 4-day Immersion. My first Silva Immersion was with Ken Coscia in May 2016. Since then, I have gone through the Silva Immersion several times and continue my research and study of the mind, body, and spirit connection. It has been an adventure of self-discovery and positivity.
In my quest for self-improvement and transformation along the way, I became a Certified John Maxwell Speaker, Trainer and Coach in March 2017. The Silva Method has transformed my life in so many ways that I want to teach others how to use it to positively transform their own lives.
The Silva Method has increased my self-confidence in many areas, not only in my skills as a martial artist but also as a healer, a leader, and a coach. Following this amazing experience, I felt compelled to share this knowledge with others because of the amazing transformations I have experienced myself. I became a Certified Silva Instructor in August 2019. I bring several years of experience as a teacher, a scholar, a coach, and a martial artist to help you navigate through the Silva Immersion and successfully apply it to live the life of your design. In addition to loving meditation, I love practicing martial arts, being in nature, investing, reading personal growth literature, and inspiring people to face their fears and pursue their deepest desires. I absolutely love to learn about different people and cultures. I am fluent in Spanish. Through the Silva Method, I have learned how to use my mind for relaxation, healing, and significantly improving my life and the lives of my loved ones.
In addition, I have realized that my purpose in life is to serve humanity through teaching self-empowerment. The way I am channeling this is to guide you through the Silva method. I am very excited and I welcome that responsibility with open arms. I look forward to guiding you through the Silva Method, which can provide you with the tools to take better control of your life, your dreams, and your ambitions.
