My personal story

I’m originally from Venezuela, but I have been living in Florida since 2002. I’m a passionate educator who love sharing with everybody the experiences and pieces of knowledge I collect in my journey.  Why Dr. G? My married name was not too easy for my students to pronounce and they started calling me Dr. G. I have to confess, I like it! 


After a decade teaching and leading under mindful leadership principles, I felt a need to share “my practices" with others outside my circle. I have taught thousands of students, led hundreds of faculty, and guide many business leaders. But, as I dove deep into mindfulness and meditation, I decided to dedicate my second career to plant seeds of greatness in others. 


That is how I started my path as a mindful leadership speaker and trainer. I combine mindfulness practices, positive psychology tools, and  neuroscience facts behind well-being to empower others to go to their next level.


Today, I share my experiences with anyone who is ready to go from automatic to automagic.
