Biography

I moved to Canada 4 years ago, after living in different countries, such as Chile, France, Switzerland, Australia, Cuba, and Argentina, where I was born and raised. Married with 2 children, I am passionate about connections through multi-culturalism, education, art, travel, and languages. I currently work as Partner Engagement Advisor for the Interdisciplinary Co-op Office, where I partner with employer organizations locally, regionally and across Canada to foster engagement within the community and source meaningful job opportunities for our students. I have more than 15 years of experience in developing and strengthening business relationships, as well as organizing high-level international events. I hold academic qualifications in business management and international relations and am fluent in English, French, Spanish, and Italian. In the past, I served as Senior Business Development Manager at the World Economic Forum, a Geneva-based non-profit organization that brings together worldwide leaders to shape global, regional and industry agendas, and launched the national chapter of the World Energy Council in Chile, under the role of Executive Director.
