Alejandra started as a young receptionist at Laboratorios Zepol, 20 years later she is the company's CEO. What happened in between? A lot of studying and a lot of learning, which she now realizes are not the same. She worked in several different positions within Zepol, as well as in other companies, and other countries. She has played many different roles during her life, from a pennyless room service attendant to a succesful night manager; from a marine biology student to leader of an important scientific investigation in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia; from an inexperienced tour guide to a saavy Reservations Manager that significantly improved the hotel's business; from a team member of an industrial production line to private labels manager; and everything in between.During all these years, Alejandra has travelled around the world seeking adrenaline and extreme adventures; has fallen in love and gotten her heart broken; she has experienced many moments of absolute happiness, as well as her fair share of extreme sadness and despair. In 2007, she lost her 27-year-old brother; in 2010, her 11-year-old sister also passed away. Got married to Julian in 2010 and became a mother in 2012, her daughter Elenonora is her uttermost reflection of love.From receptionist to CEO; from adventurous traveler to responsible mother... an entire life happens in 20 years!
