about

Nice to meet you!

I am an author, TEDx Speaker and confidence cultivator with a heart for teaching women how to walk through life with confidence and joy. I am a proud wife and mama of two amazing daughters. (If I do say so myself!)

And even though I was a writer before becoming a mama – entering into motherhood rocket launched me into my purpose – championing women and reminding them of their innate worth.

I spend my days packing snacks, having kitchen dance parties and trying to leave my corner of the world better than when I found it.

My life is a constant cycle of learning and teaching. I love to learn (sometimes the easy way – but most times the hard way) and then take that knowledge and find a way to serve others.

I teach my readers, audience members and one-on-one clients how to cultivate confidence and feel good about all of who they are.

I deliver inspirational and applicable message to university students, high school students, women's groups, book clubs, and community groups and faculties.

My book, The Courage to Become: Stories of Hope for Navigating Love, Marriage and Motherhood is my gift to women.

 I had a tough time going through the seasons of love, marriage and motherhood. I was confused and scared and basically going through an identity crisis!

So I wrote a book to share my story – but mostly to give women hope that others have been where they are standing – and they can not only survive these seasons, but they can thrive.

My book has reached far and wide into hearts and homes across the US – and it is humbling and exciting!

When I’m not writing, you can find me on walking Panamanian Beaches, teaching my favorite fitness class and cooking homemade pizza.

Sending you love and grace, Catia
