Ana Gabriela Chinchilla
Strategic Alliances Director Ana Gabriela searches for and develops collaborations, projects, and ideas, so that we can face new challenges and social-economic needs. She achieves this thanks to an incredible and impassioned group of people she is proud to lead. Ana studied economic sciences in Montpellier and has a Masters Degree in Quantitative Economics from the Lyon Lumière University. In her 8 years of professional experience, she has mostly worked towards entrepreneurship development, and small businesses, from different approaches: the Economic Ministry, the financial sector and now, from Alterna. Also, she has had specific experiences as an investigator and data analyst for different organizations in France and Guatemala, also as a professor of Economics and Statistics at Universidad Francisco Marroquín.
Outside the office, Ana tries to stay as active as she can, so you can find her traveling, hiking volcanos, swimming, partying, or at a cultural event. If you can´t find her in any of those places, she is at home with a spreadsheet, planning her next adventure (being a good student of statistics, she enjoys the planning as much as the doing).
What inspires her? Love, and everything you can achieve with love in your own life, those of others, your country, your job, and the world.
Curious Fact Some friends call her “The Jukebox”, because she know too many lyrics by heart.
