About me:

Ivonne Monteagudo was born in Mexico City on June 19, 1966. She studied Industrial Engineering at the Universidad Panamericana in Mexico City. After finishing college, she joined Procter and Gamble to work in the Marketing Department. While working at P&G, she got a Masters degree in Business Administration from the Instituto Tecnológico Autonomo de México. She has been the president of the Mexican Association of Female Executives (AMME) since 2004, and was accepted as the first Latin American woman to become part of the 2005 Class of the International Women Forum Leadership Foundation, a group of 14 women from all over the world.

I'm passionate about:

My personal interests cover many different areas. Physically, I enjoy exercising, particularly practicing Yoga. Mentally, I enjoy learning new subjects and lately I have been reading about psychology and philosophy (Karl Jung, Erich Fromm and Nietzche). I also took a Journalism course. Socially, I enjoy going out with my friends, particularly to Valle de Bravo, a little town nearby a lake where my parents own a little cabin. Finally, spiritually, I have made significant progress lately. I have been reading several books but most importantly, I have made a habit out of practicing zen meditation every day and Tai-Chi once a week.
