She has participated in important novels such as Los Años pasan, Clarisa, El vuelo del águila, Marisol, El mor tiene cara de mujer, El alma no tiene color, Gotita de amor, and Siempre te amaré. In the year of 2005, after a temporary departure, she returned to the acting scene, starring in Piel de otoño.
