When I was 23, during one of the worst economic crisis in Spain, I had a stable job in Marketing and a Degree in Advertising & PR. Then, I asked myself “Is that it?”
I have always been an ambitious woman who doesn’t settle with the standard. So, without speaking much English, I decided to head to Canada and challenge myself.

After living abroad for 4 years, I have earned a postgraduate certificate in Event Management and have 2+ years of experience in this field. I have worked on numerous types of events, from conferences to incentives and weddings.
I managed elements of the event such as venue, travel, hotel blocks, catering, décor, logistics among others.

My moto is clear: You are capable of anything you put your mind to.
