She is a Ph.D. candidate in Mythological Studies and Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, and a graduate from the Contemplative Sciences, the Contemplative Psychotherapy and the Yoga and Psychology programs from Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Sciences. Her interdisciplinary approach assumes the stance of a scholar and a mystic humanist attempting to bridge perspectives that conjoin reason and emotion, as well as scientific inquiry and contemplative practices.  She writes on cultural mythologies, the development of the sense of identity, the experience of the divine, and the possibility to transform the brain through the cultivation of compassion and ethics for social and environmental justice. She chairs the Psychology, Culture and Religion section of the American Academy of Religion—Western Region, and is a humanitarian affairs officer working as chief production editor in Spanish for the United Nations in New York.
