I am a trained bilingual psychologist with experience in clinical psychology, research, teaching and psychosocial projects. After finishing my Masters in Community Psychology, I started working with vulnerable communities, but since my dad’s death in 2015 I have dedicated myself to deepening my knowledge about death and dying, while also donating my time and skills to different UK charities and hospices where I have worked with the ill, the elderly and the bereaved. In fact, it was while facilitating a bereavement group that I learned about the Doula role. This was like the piece that was missing from my puzzle! So, I first became a Certified End of Life Doula in the USA and then continued my studies and certification here in the UK.
Currently I am living in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, and volunteering in a local hospice. Furthermore, as a Colombian and Spanish speaker, I spend my free time doing death cafes, life and death workshops and other online activities for Colombia and other Spanish speaking communities. I also enjoy reading, spending time in nature, supporting different charities, traveling around the world, learning about different cultures, doing activities for a better planet and relishing life with my loved ones. However, I have to admit that befriending death and helping others to live a more fulfilling life until the end has become my life’s vocation, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you think I could be of any help.
