Natalia is an Executive Assistant at MACLA.

Originally from Costa Rica, Natalia and her husband moved to San Jose in 2017.

She holds a degree in International Affairs with an emphasis in International Cooperation from Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica and has experience working with public and private organizations.

Her work is inspired by the opportunity of advancing and promoting art and using it as a way to support and raise awareness about human rights and social justice

She decided to be a part of the LSJ Cohort in hopes to gain from this experience an in-depth understanding of the key issues the city is facing, meet new people from different backgrounds and sectors, and find a way to give back to a community that has welcomed me with open arms.

In her free time she enjoys being outdoors, hiking and camping with my husband and friends, try new recipes (hello burned cookies!) and spending a night at home watching a movie and eating popcorns.
