Valentine grew up in France, splitting her time between Paris and Normandy as a child. For university, she moved to Toulouse in the Southwest of France where she earned her degree in marketing. After four years working for a French website in Paris and travelling the world one month a year, she felt the urge for a long-term international experience. As she had visited almost all continents but Latin America, she bought a one-way ticket to Panama and set out on her new adventure. Shortly after, she met the Live and Invest Overseas team and began her career managing conferences. She has been working as Conference Director for Live and Invest Overseas for a year, combining her passion for helping people and her love of travel. When she is not working on organizing conferences, Valentine enjoys reading and travelling the country looking for the best beaches and outdoor activities in Panama.
