Touching Lives, Awakening Minds, and Opening Hearts of Latine/Latinx and Immigrants.
Hola, I’m Criss!
Im a Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence
Consultant for Latine/Latinx and Author of Pertenæcer©.
Im excited to meet you!
Here is a little about me…
I was born in Venezuela to Colombian parents. We migrated to the US when I was 15 years old, and I have spent most of my adult life living around the US, LatAm, and Spain. My husband and I currently reside in New York city, which feels like one of the most diverse and welcoming cities I have visited in the world. Professionally, I spent over a decade in corporate America working in hispanic television sales, production, and operations. In 2016, after much inner work and reflection, I fully transitioned into a career that allowed me to spread culturally-attuned mindfulness around the world – initially running my own business and now solely through consulting. With purpose and passion I aim to create, develop and support spaces where people make meaningful connections and feel like they belong.
In addition to having a Master’s Degree in Mindfulness Studies from Lesley University, I am a certified teacher of Search Inside Yourself, a leadership program developed at Google. I am also a self-published author of “PERTENÆCER: Eight-Week Mindfulness and Meditation Training and Practices for Latinx Immigrants in the United States ©”, and co-author of “Building a more Diverse and Inclusive Science: Mindfulness-based Approaches for Latinx Individuals,” which was published in the Mindfulness Journal. My most recent certification is a Mindfulness Mentor Training from Cloud Sangha. In my offline time I enjoy practicing meditation, reading, traveling, walking in nature, doing yoga, rollerblading, and playing tennis.
