I am passionate about guiding young adults to succeed by helping them to deal with stress, anxiety, fears, and limiting beliefs.
HOW IT HAPPENED
Working as a pharmacist and counseling thousands of patients helped me realize that nowadays so many people are struggling with lifestyle diseases such as anxiety, stress, depression, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.
Seeing these diseases in young people broke my heart. The dynamic pace of retail pharmacy makes it difficult to provide in-depth help to people in need. I needed to find a different approach to help people.
I started researching more profoundly in a wide range of topics—from psychology and nutrition, and many subjects in-between.
I wanted to help young people to love themselves, love their body, take charge of their own life, and become the person that they desired and deserved to be.
I decided to become a Health and Life Coach. I learned methods that transform people’s lives through habit change. It is easy to talk. It is hard to put in work. The brain likes to hold onto old habits.
It’s very easy for the brain to continue to do what it has always done, and extremely hard for it to change.
I am from Cuenca, Ecuador. I was a happy child and teen —raised in a happy, hard-working middle-class family along with seven sisters. All of us were full of dreams.
At the age of 26 I graduated as a Doctor in Biochemistry and Pharmacy. I opened my first retail pharmacy store. Over the next 15 years, I built my first pharmacy into a well-known and successful chain of 9 retails stores.
However, a national monetary crisis marked the end of the business. Suddenly, with 3 daughters to support, no money, no business, and no job –I got depressed.
I looked for professional help and I was prescribed antidepressants. I took them for 3 days and I told myself, I am not going to do this to myself. A pill is not going to fix my problems. I need to move on.
In 2008, at the age of 42, I consulted with elderly family members, my mother, and my daughters– and I decided to travel to the United States on a student visa to study English and take a sabbatical year. It was so hard to accept that all my hard work of 15 years had disappeared like water in the hands. I would cry all the time feeling so guilty for what happened.
While in the United States I decided to take the exams to become a pharmacist. I was so blessed, as I found angels everywhere that helped me in every step along my way. When we work hard and persevere….. results come sooner or later.
Now I want to give it back. The least I can do is help new generations to be the best version of themselves through coaching, guidance, and counseling.
With the right support, appropriate accountability and a proven system, I can definitely be the person that holds your hand and helps you achieve your dreams and build a joyful and successful life.
Over the last few years I have helped many young adults make massive changes in their life. I love what I do. There is nothing more rewarding than giving support to young people.
