She was born in a small mining town in Northern Chile at an altitude of 2400 meters. She was raised by her maternal grandparents who taught her to be joyful and strong to deal with life. Her village was quiet, so there wasn’t much to do besides read books and watch TV. And so was born her interest in the world, different cultures, languages, and travel through the experiences of others.
She came to Chile from California for the first time in January 2012, and quickly fell in love with the country’s sense of humor and wine. She decided she wanted to share the love she had for the country. If you’re lucky enough to meet her and are able to decipher her speedy Spanglish, she will delight you with all her knowledge of music, bars and social movements
When Pablo arrived in Valparaiso in 2010 few could have imagined that he would leave such an impact. Nicknamed the “Condor of Catemu,” for his native lands at the base of the Andes Mountains, Pablo is a highflier. A lover of music, a world class dancer, and never far away from a chilled glass of rosé.
Julie came from France to do an internship, but ended up being so passionated about her work than a few months later, she was hired.

Jeraldine has taken to the challenge of Admin and Accounts with flying colours (were talking in work ethics and also in clothing choice). She is a ray of sunshine in the office that has taken to the spirit of the company and her new transportation of choice? Green Bicycle thank you very much.
