Being a very devoted catholic, she then became fascinated by Buddhism that she learned from the Tibetan tradition. She moved to Los Angeles in 2002 with her now late husband and three young daughters. By migrating to the US, she left behind her Business and Geography careers to devote herself to her family, her personal growth, and the study and practice of the Dharma to enhance her life and the lives of others around her. In Los Angeles she became more familiar with the Insight Vipassana Tradition. Tere became a creative painter. Her mindfulness journey has strengthened her creativity as a visual artist. For the past 9 years she had to take over the presidency of a large multinational company in Mexico City that she was able to grow and strengthen very successfully. Being able to prove by herself the benefits of mindfulness even in the corporate world. Her heart calls her to share the Dharma from the heart in Spanish to larger communities.
