Born in Chile and raised in the United States, Andrea grew up with an appreciation for both cultures. Regularly returning to Chile to visit her family, her desire to learn more about her home country and the rest of the region continued to grow. From living in Mexico, Colombia, and Peru, Drea was able to discover the individual flavors of each culture. Though very different, she noticed two common themes between each country. First, that there’s a true entrepreneurial spirit within Latin America. Second, people often lacked the tools, support, and mentorship to make their business endeavors thrive and scale. Through LocalAventura, Drea hopes she can help local guides grow and expand their businesses by making resources more readily accessible and mentoring them on how to best use those resources.
Working on LocalAventura has given Drea a new and exciting task to face. When she’s not making quick decisions for the business, Drea can be found cycling; she makes sure to find a bike tour no matter where she visits.
