She holds a B.A. in Social Communication and a M.A. in International Relations. She completed her Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Graduate Studies at the University of British Columbia-Okanagan. The topic of her doctoral research was Feminist Critical Human Security: Women’s (In) Security and Smuggling on Ecuador’s Borders. This research, which utilized qualitative methods, was carried out with a grant from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Canada.

In addition to her experience in academia, she worked as a Security Advisor for the Ecuadorian Government. From April 2007 to September 2010, she served as Security and Defense Advisor in the Ministry of Internal and External Security and as Human Security Consultant at the National Migrants Secretariat, the Ecuadorian Agency for International Cooperation and the National Secretariat of Intelligence. As Under Secretary of Sovereignty and Border Relations at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, she coordinated the visit of the General Secretary and the Verification Mission of the Organization of American States (OAS).
