About Me
Even though I come from a family of diplomats and lawyers from Nicaragua, I was born and raised in the city of Panamá, Republic of Panamá.

After graduating high school in Panamá, I continued my studies in languages while in Nicaragua and business while in Florida, USA. I’m fluent in English and Spanish.

I have been blessed with 43 years of happy marriage.

I’m used to meeting new people and making friends easily. I’ve traveled intensively, and enjoy nature, reading, writing, and gardening.

From a professional perspective, I have had intensive training and experience in the airline industry since 1968, and I enjoy providing quality customer service.

I am currently the Public Relations and International Director of M & L Transports Magazine, which is dedicated to presenting the latest information on multimodality and logistic issues in Panamá and around the world, as well as exposing a variety of opportunities in the region for investment, relocation and tourism.
