Karina was born in the dramatically situated city of Quito, Ecuador. After finishing school, she obtained a degree in business administration. She has worked extensively in the tourism industry since the age of 19: running logistics and operations for tours to Africa and Asia, and working as the Operations Manager for Sacha Lodge, Ecuador for over a decade. She is an avid traveler and loves nature. Since 2012, she has been organizing Rockjumper’s tours to Ecuador, and we are excited to have her join us as a full-time member of our team in our brand-new Conservation Tours Department.
