When she is not in the office or out on fieldwork, she may be found on the summit of mountains. Ever since her college days, she continued being an active member of the Loyola Mountaineers (LM). As of date, she has already conquered 12 summits all over the Philippines and wishes to embark on conquering other mountains overseas soon.
Her sound foundation in the fields of management and economics, together with her awareness and advocacies on environmental preservation, inspired her to pursue a career in the development sector and made her good fit in providing capacity-building interventions to different organizations.
