Tell us about your career and how it all started?

My passion for acting started at a young age, often pretending to be a movie star with my grandmother as my audience. At the age of 17 my audience grew as I began a career in modeling starting in the south of Argentina. I won the "Queen of the students" award, a trip that a student takes upon high school graduation. After that I moved from Santiago Del Estero to Buenos Aires after signing with a top modeling agency. Although I was attending the University of Buenos Aires for Social Communication, I decided to continue my career as a model, working internationally in Italy, Spain, Turkey, France, Mexico, Peru, Chile and Brazil. I learned of different cultures, places, people and the Italian language fluently. I modeled in runways, commercials, editorials, catalogs, campaigns, experiencing the life and travel as a model but her true passion lead her to Los Angeles  15 years ago. Immediately I began with acting classes, coaching, improving my English, I graduated with honors from ACT. I'm also a meteorologist, oceanographer and a journalist.  I've done over 200 commercials and won 5 awards including "Best Actress" for my role as Lynda in the movie "The Red Door" in The International Haunted Horror Film Festival and "Shockfest Film Festival". I am successfully advancing my career as an actress landing roles in several films including the lead in "Djinn", "Bad Cop", "Down For Life" to name a few. I'm currently working on radio and TV for the hispanic market in Los Angeles.

What does sisterhood mean to you?

We share a bond that cannot be forged with just anyone. Many chapters have similar values and goals, but sisterhood bonds form when a group of sisters all work together to accomplish goals. I am all about empower each other and coming together as strong women.

What's your personal mantra? Without God I am nothing, I pray everyday. 

What is your superpower?

I am a mom, with that said I am also a teacher, nurse, therapist, tourist guy, chef, a wife and everything in between! Lol

Tell us about women that inspired you and your female role models:

Madre Teresa for her amazing legacy, Rigoberta Menchú for her dedication in Guatemala about the civil right of the indigenous people in that country. My mother because she is a clear example that if you really want something you just work hard and get it! 

What would be your advice for women who are building careers in your industry?

Never stop believing that you can achieve anything in this life.

One piece of advice for your 18 year old self?

Enjoy everything and every moment some of them won’t repeat only and only if you are lucky so enjoy the ride.
