One of her passions is Data Visualization.
She discovered it in twitter in 2011 and ever since she’s been focused (obsessed?) with exploring synergies between visualisation and other disciplines, and learning while having fun by visualizing important information and concepts.

She is focused now in sharing her knowledge in the Loving Visuals Academy, where other experts will also share their competences and knowledge in any discipline, but using visual support materials.

...It's been a long journey

Thank you so much

It has taken me quite a lot of time and personal development (overcoming my own limiting beliefs) to focus my energy and make this project see the light (longer than an elephant pregnancy!). But it was very important to me. So I am so excited that it is finally a reality :).

Many people has helped me along all the way that I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart:

And to all those who have faith and believe in me Heart Icon, Transparent Heart.PNG Images & Vector - FreeIconsPNG.
Including those of you who will/did boost our confidence by registering to our first training.

To all of you, THANK YOU.
