As an anthropologist and specialist in feminist studies from the National University of Colombia, she has supported several community-based organizations working at the intersection of women’s and gender non-conforming people’s rights and environmental justice, and developed experience in areas such as collective knowledge production, grantmaking, and convening at regional and global levels, as well as self and collective care.
