Hello, I am a civil society leader and social entrepreneur with 20 years of experience in the social sector, digital development and international cooperation. For six years, I worked with the World Bank managing web related projects that promote collaboration and knowledge sharing, at the Development Gateway and as part of the Intranet team. I co-founded MAKAIA and have led it since its inception. I have transformed an idea into an organization that has served thousands of nonprofits and social projects in Latin America. In 2017 I transitioned to the role of Chief Strategy Officer with the goal of designing the long-term sustainability plan for MAKAIA.
I have a Mechanical Engineering degree, an MBA, a specialization in International Cooperation for Development, and a Certificate in Nonprofit Management. I have lived in Costa Rica, France, USA, and Colombia.
