Camila is originally from San José, Costa Rica. Although she misses her family and loves Costa Rica, the mountains, and believes the best coffee in the world is there, the opportunity of learning and joining the music therapy field has brought her to America, finding a home in every stop along the journey: first New Orleans and now Atlanta!
She earned her bachelor’s degree in Music Therapy from Loyola University New Orleans in 2017. She loved her time in New Orleans, learning about the city’s culture, food and music, but also their people and their history. Camila’s primary instrument is violin, and she is proficient in guitar, piano, ukulele and voice. In 2017 she moved to the Metro Atlanta Area to complete her internship with Metro Music Therapy, working with a variety of populations such as at-risk youth, geriatrics and autism, in addition to working and being a part of Metro’s amazing team of therapists.
After finally adjusting to Atlanta’s traffic and energy, Camila has fully embraced her new home and continues to discover the city and its diversity. She is very passionate about working with Atlanta’s Refugee population, navigating cultural aspects of identity through music and learning from the different needs that Music Therapy can reach and help.
At Metro Music Therapy Camila is working with at-risk youth, refugees and providing music lessons for every learner. Camila is very grateful and excited to be a part of Metro Music Therapy’s team!
