Belén grew up in Davenport, and spent the first four years of her career as a photo retoucher in San Francisco. After moving back to Iowa in 2017, she continued working remotely as a retoucher and then moved into freelancing. Her work has been published in Cosmopolitan Magazine, and she has been a guest lecturer for both the undergraduate and graduate design programs at Iowa State University. Her role at BBS will combine her passions of helping others and finding creative solutions while keeping everything organized.

Belén and Matthew (also of BBS) live in Des Moines with their cat Azula. Just like Bob Ross, she does find joy in painting; but she also loves traveling, trying new recipes and food, playing multiple instruments, and making friends with fish at aquariums.
