I started my career in communications as an Environmental journalist for World Wildlife Fund Latin America. This led me to move to Japan where I spent over 8 years conducting academic research and also teaching in schools and universities.
After completing my studies and teaching contracts, I moved back to my native Venezuela to allow my children to connect with their heritage and extended family, alongside co-owning and managing an eco-friendly hospitality business.
In 2014 I moved to Thailand where I worked as the Marketing Manager of an online business, before pursuing roles in admissions and marketing management within international education.
The thing I love about this career is that I am able to communicate with people from all over the world and offer them the key to an excellent education in a safe, friendly, engaging and happy environment.
