I am a teacher and a psychotherapist. I was born in Costa Rica, speak Spanish, and now live in Downey, California. I love traveling, especially to Latin America, enjoy reading and writing poetry and short story. Books I can't be without: poetry by Mary Oliver and Pablo Neruda. Loooove chocolate, coffee, bread, music,(listening and dancing), sharing conversations with family and friends. I have three children, all grown now, I love to cook and experiment with new ingredients and recipes. I like to enjoy every moment and live it as if it were my last. I love dogs... have two, a Cocker Spaniel and a Rottweiller.
