After completing the program she joined the team as a tutor and then as the Buenos Aires Region Director. In 2017 she became Program Director at the national level. During these years she deepened her knowledge about academic and socioemotional skills in the students, as well as topics of collaborative leadership and diversity in the educational communities.
