Twenty years ago Corazon began her recovery of anorexia, a journey that led her to discover her path as a body esteem healer. Her upcoming book in Spanish, Cuerpografías, is a memoir of her recovery told in poetry. In addition, her fiction writings about anorexia are included in two anthologies: Ana y su anorexia: Más allá de no comer (Editorial La Biblioteca 2005) and Breaking Ground: Anthology of Puerto Rican Women Writers 1980-2010 (Editorial Campana 2011)
For almost 20 years, Corazon was an editor and writer at prominent US’s Spanish language magazines. She reached millions of Hispanic readers with health, wellness and food content published in magazines such as Siempre Mujer, Ser Padres, Healthy Kids en Español, Shape en Español and Latina.

Now she maintains a self-esteem and wellness blog in Spanish, CuerpoAdentro, empowering Hispanic women around the world to love their bodies, regardless of weight or size.

Also, she is the self-esteem columnist for Belleza XL, the first online magazine in history for Spanish-speakers plus size people.
As a dance-theater performer, Corazon integrates dance, poetry, theater and music in performances that bring to the audience a healing experience.
