She was immediately offered a role in "Destino" and "Todo por amor," for which she received the Palmas de oro award.

"Cara o Cruz" was the first telenovela co-production between Argos Comunicación and Telemundo, that was made exclusively for the Hispanic audience living in the United States. It was later rebroadcast in Mexico, by independent channel CNI. She was also seen playing María in the telenovela "Por tí" for TV Azteca and the mini-series that followed up on "Pedro El Escamoso," "Como Pedro por su casa" which was a co-production between Caracol from Colombia and Telemundo.
