I have a burning desire to keep contributing to social change, sustainability and well-being. Following that North Star I am stepping into impact entrepreneurship with holibody now. My side projects are no-code web design and short-term home rentals. Hospitality and looking for / creating beauty are traits I love using in my projects.

I started dreaming about it with my business partner in mid 2021. It's been a slow but certain learning process around online businesses: I conducted market research, strategy and validation; lead the website and brand development; co-created our business plan, among everything else needed being a solo-enrepreneur.

As part of a year-long intensive program I learned web design and fell in love with no-code. I created the website for holibody.com and after that I helped other entrepreneurs make their sites look more beautiful and functional. Now I collaborate with a Spanish digital consultant designing and optimizing websites of any kind.

Willis Towers Watson
I researched global benefits for benchmarking, presented the prevalence and efficiency of corporate plans, prepared reports of the market practice and in general had a pretty repetitive job which strengthened my analytical skills but left me longing for more meaningful work.
[01/12/2012 - 30/04/2013]
It was my first approach to formal human resources. For this internship I updated all personnel data base, joined prospects interviews and did a lot of admin tasks. I discovered I enjoy supporting groups of people and reassuring them.

Hotel San Martín
To finance a study trip to Salamanca, Spain I worked over the summer season as an hotel receptionist. Here's where I discovered how outstanding my hospitality can be. I still treasure that experience welcoming guests, coordinating the restaurant and cleaning personnel and enjoying solving typical problems.
