Katalina is the CEO and founder of El Camino Travel. Katalina started her career as a union organizer based in Washington DC where she got to know the other side of the Anacostia River that is often ignored. She then went on to support rural electrification projects around the world including Southern Sudan, Guatemala, Bolivia, and other countries. For awhile, she oversaw climate change programs funded by the Department of State which took her to Colombia then to Brazil and back to Colombia.
She got sucked in the entrepreneurial hustle a few years ago when she launched an independent consulting business centered on social innovation and international development rooted in her commitment to making the world a better place. While consulting she had the opportunity to work with hustlers in countries like Haiti and Uganda as well as multilateral international institutions like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Inter-American Development Bank, and American Planning Association. Her diverse international experience is key to how she has approached the growth of El Camino Travel.
Emma has recently joined our community as El Camino’s Travel Coordinator.
She grew up in the northeast, attended college in the southwest and went along willingly as life prescribed her most recent move to DC. A lover of all things expressive, Emma seeks to discover everything in life that makes her soul smile. She’s happiest when she feels the sun against her skin as she treads ocean waves and feels most peaceful when she’s hanging upside down.
You can likely find Emma in half-pigeon, at brunch as her menacing alias “The Brunch Monkey”, or traversing somewhere along the east coast where she's known to take long drives to clear her mind.
