Guide Bio

Raised in Belgium at an organic vegetable farm, I was born with an appetite for adventure and entrepreneurship. At a young age, my father taught me to take care of the environment by imparting a deep appreciation for the natural world.

I love to explore nature and started to employ my skills as an outdoor education instructor in Belgium, Italy and the Spanish Pyrenees where I have instructed kayaking, rock climbing, canyoneering, rafting, hiking, speleology, mountain biking and ski courses for the visually impaired.

My interest in multi-cultural exchange and passion for helping indigenous populations in developing countries led me to study Development Cooperation, for which I conducted a thesis field study on Ecotourism in Ecuador. It was there where I developed a strong sense of compassion for the impoverished. In my desire to contribute to positive change amongst local communities in Latin America, I started a fair travel adventure tour operator-based agency in Peru that works hand in hand with Andean, coastal and Amazonian communities to help preserve their environmental and cultural heritages.

I am always looking for new learning experiences everywhere. I love to meet new people, explore new places, to share and inspire others. With over 15 years of experience working as a tour guide, I work with people of all ages and many different nationalities and diverse cultures. I love to smile and I am convinced that continuous learning through travel is the best food for the heart and soul.

I recently got married with my Peruvian husband and I am focusing on using my experience to train other guides and give opportunities to more local people.

Thank you for submitting a review. It will be published shortly.
