Helen was born and raised in Mexico City. She has been involved in Jewish life from a young age, and worked as a madricha in Mexico, the U.S., and Canada, planning cultural activities, competing in international sports events, and organizing artistic festivals. Helen currently works as a psychodramatist, theater director, writer, and conducts training courses for companies and educational institutes. In 2013 she became the director of the Black Box; an improv theater group focused on exploring social and educational problems, moral dilemmas, and identity issues trough sketches, playback theater techniques, and improvisation. She is the author of Theater i: impact, interaction, improvisation, a book that makes this important and unique concept accessible, which she presented at the Ibero-American Psychodrama Congress in Portugal. Last year Helen organized the first Latin-American Jewish seminar on social impact theater, bringing people from over seven countries to learn the techniques of Theatre i, and take it back with them to their countries. She defines herself most deeply as an educator and believes education has the power to bring about change in people. She has taught music and theatre for more than ten years. She is also passionate about social change and volunteers in a number of organizations such as Blank Space (which build houses for the poorest people), CADENA (which brings food and clothes to places coping with natural disasters), and FEMEJJ (the federation of Jewish youth movements in Mexico). Helen is also a member of Lazos and the Asylum Arts network, and a frequent participant in Moishe House events.
