Several years of working in the environmental arena in Latin America reinforced my passion for nature but also my concern for natural resource management and the establishment of responsible enterprises. I am motivated to contribute to economic growth in different types of businesses but at the same time addressing environmental and social practices as an integrated system, providing individuals and groups with the tools and capacity required to create or boost businesses and satisfy their needs.
