Experience 1

I am currently an author, editor and translator for palabra., a multimedia platform delivering informative journalism on Latin American affairs, covering “stories and communities that have been disregarded in larger news outlets based on the ideology that ‘ethnic’ news is only an issue for marginalized communities, and not a human issue.”

Throughout my career as a journalist, I have published articles in newspapers and magazines including, but not limited to, the Boston Globe, Sunday Express, The Times of London, The Observer, Travesias and Gato Pardo. I’ve been a columnist for the International Herald Tribune, The News website, BBMundo magazine and Mexico Business magazine, as well as an editorial assistant for the Toronto Star and a reporter and editor for the Mexico City Times.

I have also worked as a consultant, researcher and travel writer in the hospitality industry, focusing on regional culture and community. I’ve written two anniversary coffee-table books on the history and hospitality of iconic hotels in Acapulco, Mexico and my writing has been included in academic collections on the anthropology of tourism. My expertise in this field is Mexico, with a focus on the historic beach resort of Acapulco and her world-famous cliff diver community.

I hold a PhD from the University of Warwick Contemporary Literature Department, where I produced the first study of post-feminism through its articulations in popular literature, under the supervision of Professor Helen Taylor. I have held brief positions as a lecturer in Literature and Women’s Studies at the University of West London, as well as Art History and Media Studies at The Endicott College (Mexico City campus).

Besides my journalistic, writing and teaching work, over the years I have been actively involved with feminist organisations in the UK that support marginalized women. I was a Press Officer, Fundraiser and Welfare Worker for Hibiscus (FPWP) in London, assisting women affected by the UK criminal justice system and immigration restrictions. At The Beehive in Kent, I help out as a Facilitator, meeting with vulnerable women in the community and finding ways to support them and their families.
