She does not remember her life without music. Born in Madrid, she began her musical adventure at the age of six. Already at this age, her passion for the flute was very intense. This love for music brings her to different Higher Music Conservatories: Salamanca (ES), Folkwang Hochschule Essen (DE) and finally the Royal College of Music in London (UK) with the flute soloist of the London Symphony Orchestra Jaime Martín and piccolo soloist of the London Philharmonic Orchestra Stewart MacIlwham.
After finishing her flute and piccolo studies with the highest honors and having worked as flute co-soloist and piccolo soloist in various symphonic orchestras renowned in her home country, such as the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra, she feels the need to delve into early music. She gives up her work at the orchestra to study Specialized Master of Traverso and Classical Flute at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels with Jan de Winne, member of the group Il Gardellino. After a few years of fruitful studies, Brussels, a city that has seen her passion for early music and chamber music emerge, became her new home.
Winner of the York Early Music International Young Artists Competition 2017 with the ensemble BarrocoTout, she continues her professional life in Brussels working with orchestras and chamber music groups all over Europe.
