Claudia took refuge in 2003. Following Lama Ole's and Hannah's request, together with Juan Franco, established the Diamond Way center in Barcelona in the same year. She worked for the development of the dharma there until 2010, when she moved to Bogotá - Colombia.
Since then, together with a few idealistic friends, Claudia also established the first Diamond Way Living Center of Colombia and was actively involved in the national projects. Lama Ole asked her to teach in December 2014.
Claudia is Brazilian and has been working in communication, marketing, and will soon start studying to become a health coach.
