Pats– Marketing Coordinator
Since her first transatlantic flight as a one-year old, Pats was ready for a future of travel and adventure. Being born in Poland and living most of her life in Canada, Pats grew up knowing different cultures, languages and continents. After exploring North America and Europe, she wanted to discover a new territory and culture that was unknown to her, that being South America.
In 2009, while in University, she received the opportunity to travel to Peru with an NGO to work in Cusco, the Sacred Valley, Piura and Lima. She quickly fell in love with the majesty of the Andes mountains and was inspired by the colorful traditions of the local artisans. Working primarily in design and image, Pats sparked an idea to develop an e-commerce website to offer the rest of the world the unique apparel products made by Peruvian artisans and designers. Realizing her dream in 2012, she officially packed her bags and moved to Lima.
While working in the business side of the Peruvian textile and fashion industry, she simultaneously explored the vast terrains of Peru and South America. Falling in love with the magic of the Amazon rainforest, the wonders of the Andes mountains and the beauty of the sandy costal beaches, Pats knew she wanted to transition over professionally to the travel industry. After meeting the friendly and travel-expert team at Rainforest Cruises, she knew her education, experience and passion was a perfect match. If Pats had to choose her favorite thing about Peru, without a doubt it would be the food. There is nothing a Ceviche and Inca Kola can’t fix.
