Her first documentary, Urban Nature, was screened in several domestic film festivals, and later became part of a social campaign to promote recycling. Upon receiving her Bachelors in Communication Media from La Universidad Anahuac del Mayab, she produced the short film Reflections, which premiered at the International Film Festival Expression en Corto.
