In Luciana's words: "traveling is about discovering; and while it is about experiencing different cultures, interacting with new and interesting people, exchanging experiences, de-stressing from day-to-day life, and breaking routines, it is also a trip within oneself. Most times, travelers come back transformed and reinvigorated". Luciana does not have a favorite destination. "All countries, cultures, and peoples have something special and unique about them. It's always enriching to share this diversity. A couple of months ago, when traveling with a group of women on an educational trip, we visited a community center geared towards educating children in Colombia's country side, it was amazing how in spite of the language and socio-economic differences, and educational barriers we could receive and give so much; how most of us can easily adapt to an unknown environment and be so receptive to the local people and consequently contribute in such a generous way".
Luciana is well known in the industry and has worked as a Sales, Operations, Product Manager for over 20 years.
