With ten successful years under her belt as a career economist, and a hard-won degree in that discipline, she was financially comfortable and poised for a well-deserved promotion at the Barcelona, Spain utilities company where she worked. But her inner voice nagged relentlessly, prodding her to leave the security of her corporate post and pursue her passion for acting in earnest. Despite admonishments from her concerned parents and tempting enticements from her employer, she set out for New York’s prestigious HB Studio, to pursue studies in acting (awarded for a scholarship).
Since she was a teen, she staged in-home dramatic presentations with her three brothers for their parents, and nurtured her acting avocation by earning a three-year degree at Barcelona’s Eolia School of Dramatic Arts, working by day at her economist’s job, and studying by night.
Until she set sail for New York, she felt she “was dying.” She owned a home, socialized often with good friends and family and enjoyed her professional responsibilities/relationships, as well as the mutual respect of her employer/co-workers, but something was askew. Once immersed in the HB Studio’s intensive study of acting, and exhilarated by the inspirational professionals teaching the experiential curriculum, she finally found her groove!
