Wellness Chisme Chat is a podcast where guests co-create a space to share how they incorporate wellness into their lives from a BI&POC perspective. We may experience pain, trauma, and hardships as we work to build a more equitable world. That's why it's more important than ever to build a space we can post up with our cafecito to center how we care for ourselves, the community, and world.

As a woman-identifying person with hyphenated identities, she has been fascinated and drawn to what Gloria Anzaldúa calls borderlands- those of us who occupy a space of in-betweenness whether that is our physical location or the identities we hold in our bodies. Taking moments of rest have helped her reframe life's priorities.
