She has an extensive consulting and teaching background, having worked for a wide variety of organizations including the United Nations’ Development Program, the Office of the Mayor of Valencia, Valenzuela, the Spanish Agency for International Development, the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance, and many others.
