Originally from El Salvador, I came to Canada when I was 14 years old and I right away I felt at home. I came to Whistler over 3 years ago to work for one of the big hotel chains in town as I have over 20 years of experience in the restaurant and event planning industry. A year and a half ago I decided to leave that industry and try something new. I joined Regional Recycling as their General Manager for the Whistler operation where my role is to oversee the day to day operations and work with the Whistler community to create awareness on all the different recycling programs we participate. This has given me the opportunity to work with AWARE and this next step feels natural. I bring a lot of different skills from event planning to inside knowledge in the recycling industry, I believe I will be a great addition to the team.
