~Estela was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she met her husband and started their family. They immigrated to Canada over 35 years ago where her passion for people and love of languages led to her career as an interpreter in Vancouver.

She and her husband have travelled extensively throughout Southeast Asia, Turkey, Mexico and Europe and they return home every year to visit family and explore some of the most remote regions of Argentina. Their favourite trip was done in a 4×4, as they followed the famous ruta cuarenta (Trunk Road 40) from the southernmost town of Ushuaia to the northernmost border town of La Quiaca near Bolivia.

She is always ready to share her culture with whomever she meets, preferably over a glass of Malbec listening to traditional Argentine folkloric music!
