After acquiring her M.Sc. in Tropical Environmental Studies and Geography with specialty in Marine Wildlife Management, she worked as a research coordinator, a translator, and a nature interpreter taking kids and families out to the sea. She also cruised around the world visiting more than 10 regions in 90 days including Antarctica, working as a communication coordinator for the ‘Peace Boat’, a NGO dedicated to education for peace and sustainability. She has spent the last couple of years in Mexico working as an environmental educator. She definitely feels passionate about creating a sustainable world for all life forms sharing the one planet
