Personal and Professional Growth Coaching


My mission is to help excellent women and non-binary people enhance their impact at work and step into the life they've always dreamt of. 

Do you consider yourself an excellent woman/non-binary person? Do you feel stuck or confused? Not always able to reach your goals or determine your next steps? Everyone faces challenges in life at one moment or another, but not everyone reaches out for support. Coaching can help you clarify what you want, develop your strengths, and meet your goals. I am a certified Leadership Coach, and I am here to help!


Via a series of conversations with Coach Maylén, you'll be challenged to draw out the answers that already lie within you. You'll be able to clarify what success looks like for you and move your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs into a more helpful space so that you can spring into action... so that, as the excellent woman you are, you can finally live the life you want! 

Home: Welcome

There is no right answer for any given challenge. Everyone has the freedom to determine what is right for them and construct their own way forward.




I am originally from Cuba, and I've been an educator for the past 12 years, teaching high school Spanish, French and Mathematics. I have also served as a mentor and team leader in the education space. My pronouns are she/her/hers.

One of the most formative experiences of my career was a two-year service in the Peace Corps  (Mauritania, 07-09), where I served as a girls' education and empowerment agent.


In recognition of the challenges that women and non-binary people sometimes face in their careers and life outside of work, I have felt inspired to focus my coaching efforts on them. I do not discriminate against men or any other gender identity or expression, so feel free to reach out to me if you feel our values are a good match!

I have a Bachelor's in Comparative Literature from Princeton and a Master's in Education from Stanford. Currently, I am working on my Ph.D. in Leadership Studies at the University of San Diego. I am certified as a Leadership Coach through USD's Leadership Coaching certificate program, a program accredited by the ICF, and I am working on obtaining my ICF credential by August 2022.

Since September 2020, I have been helping excellent women untangle and gain a deep understanding of their challenges. From career changes to making more time for their family or becoming more effective leaders at work, I have been supporting clients in achieving their goals.  

In my free time, I love to spend the afternoon at the beach with my partner, our newborn son and our friends. We work out, kayak, and do standup paddle boarding before enjoying a delicious barbecue.

When I first started working with Maylén, I wasn’t sure what to expect out of our meetings. I knew I needed some guidance on my career path, but I was unsure of how working with a coach could bring me clarity. Each meeting I had with Maylén brought me more confidence on what I wanted to do. She asked me questions that made me think deeply about my goals and aspirations. 

I’m currently an educational specialist and came into our meetings with the mindset that education is not where I want to be. I introduced Maylén to my business idea and each meeting, she asked me what I could do to achieve my goals for my business. She made it my responsibility to come prepared with new information about how I would achieve those goals. Working with her really pushed me to get started on my business and although it is still small, it has grown so much because of her support.

The best part of working with Maylén is that while she supported my new business endeavor, she helped me figure out how to remain Positive while working in my current position. She even found a way for me to think about what I could take from my current position and apply to my new business. Knowing that I would like to eventually get out of education, but that my business will take time to get where I want it to be, she knew that she had to support me in a way that would help me remain positive while being in education for a little while longer. I highly recommend working with Maylén as a coach. Not only did she offer guidance on how to navigate my career path, she also showed me that she really cares about me and my life.
