About Author

I was born in The Hague (Netherlands) among tulip fields, to a German mother and Spanish father. After studying and working for many years in London and the United States, I currently reside in Madrid. I have always questioned myself: Why are we here? Where do we come from and where are we going? What is our particular mission?

That existential search led me to reinvent myself by integrating my experience as an executive coach and my career in investment banking. I have dedicated years to developing several of my own methodologies related to stress management, motivation and leadership; helping at the same time to focus and recover the values, vision and mission of managers and their organizations to facilitate transformation and give meaning to success. Graduate in Business and MBA from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, I have more than fourteen years of experience in the financial sector as an investment fund manager in entities such as Inversis Banco, Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan. At the same time, I trained in Neurolinguistic Programming and Coaching at the NLP Academy in London with John Grinder, Tony Robbins and Landmark Forum.

In addition, I am a yoga and meditation teacher at the Sivananda Vedanta school and I teach mindfulness workshops at ESADE. During my entrepreneurial stage I co-founded Acumen Gestión, a sustainable social venture capital manager, and Samastah, a platform for comprehensive solutions to find personal balance. Likewise, I support several social projects both in Spain and in India, a country that I have visited ten times. Today I am a speaker at Thinking Heads, a Fellow at Oxford Leadership and a facilitator at the transformational leadership consultancy WALK. I have given workshops to clients such as Banco Santander, Telefónica, Microsoft, Novartis, Ferrovial, Seur, Mapfre, Michelin, Altadis, Aenor, EUIPO (EU Intellectual Property Office), MPI (Meeting Professionals International), CSIC (Superior Scientific Research Counsel) and IWF (International Women’s Forum) among others.

Personally, I collaborate with the Vicente Ferrer Foundation and the NGO Seeds of Consciousness. And my passion is to learn, grow and contribute, generating impact on society, supporting each other while sharing vital experiences and connections.
