Mom of two, Biologist in eternal love with the Deep-Sea Ecology world. My specialty was deep sea invertebrates and of course you need an oceanographic vessel to explore such depths. I had the honor to have worked with amazing people in the Atlantis II (WHOI, USA) and Justo Sierra (UNAM, Mexico). Back then, the Atlantis II was the home of the submersible “Alvin”, the same one that discovered the Titanic! Later in life, I went across the ocean, all the way to Sweden to obtain a master’s degree in Environmental Biotechnology. While I was there, I did a lot of cool experiments with mushrooms to decrease the cost of biogas production. I love learning and teaching what I know. My teaching love has extended in the areas of Science, English (ESL Certified Teacher), Diving (Dive Master YMCA and PADI) and Kundalini Yoga. Kundalini yoga has been my source of inspiration, energy, and guidance for 23 years. It has transformed my life in amazing ways. Practice and teaching kundalini yoga is to me a most precious gift. Together with Sanjay Dorje (Peter Farquharson), we dance life together with our two kids, Evan and Sarah who we are Home-Educating.
