Where are you from originally?
Guatemala City, Guatemala
Why did you choose to become a field advisor?
I’ve been working in outdoor education and running travel programs the past few years. My love for travel and commitment to education and growth brought me to Winterline.
How did you begin teaching/traveling?
Travel has always been part of my family’s culture and running travel programs was one of those things where I was in the right place at the right time. I fell in love with it immediately.
What are you most excited for about Winterline?
To keep learning and to be able to mentor others to travel responsibly.
What’s the most important thing students and parents should know about you?
Safety comes above everything. As a solo female traveler, you learn to always be looking out for yourself. The world, as beautiful as it is, comes with risks, and I’ve been trained professionally and throughout my travels on how to take care of others and myself in the most diligent way.
What’s the most incredible thing you’ve seen or done while traveling?
This is a tough one. I’ve had the opportunity to experience so much in every season and environment around the globe from reindeer sledding in Norway, to getting lost in the Amazon in Peru, to spending a night sleeping under the stars in Thar Desert in India. I’m nothing but grateful for every single one of my travels, and for all the history and personal lessons I get to learn.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
I’m a jazz, tap and ballet dancer! Dance and photography are my artistic ways to express myself.
