Lorena is originally from Colombia but at a very young age her family immigrated to Honduras. Volunteering for medical brigades in rural Honduras sparked in her a burning desire to love people, and provide outstanding educational and health access opportunities to her community. Therefore, she later pursued a BA in Nonprofit Administration and has been working for different nonprofits both in Honduras and USA. Currently, Lorena and her husband are Seattle “newbies” and she is excited to be pursuing an MA in International Community Development and being a new member of LMI. Whether in Colombia, Honduras or Seattle, Lorena´s undeniable love for plantains will only continue to grow!
