She has edited three books and helmed as chief editor six glossies—four women’s and parenting titles, one on deep ecology, and most recently, a magazine for the maritime community and their families. She is currently the editor of Manila Bulletin’s Business Agenda, and edits technical papers for international humanitarian groups such as Oxfam. As head of Blended Learning Services, Inc., she runs a school in Quezon City, and partners with people around the Philippines to bring literature-based and values-rich education to children. She has twin boys, a teenage girl, four dogs, and three cats—a wonderful formula for chaos, and an antidote to boredom.
