Cecilia Soares

Travel Advisor
Cecilia was the best I have ever worked with, didn't even get annoyed with all my changes!
Christina, California
Although Brazilian by birth, Cecilia has spent most of her life abroad, having lived in the UK, United States, Canada, and Mexico. Traveling is her passion and she is fortunate to have friends all over the world, which means she always has somewhere to stay and people with whom to experience local life. Cecilia's BA degree in International Development Studies from McGill University in Montreal, Canada served her well in her corporate career with Nokia in the Marketing and Corporate Communications department. Later, as a partner in a marketing agency, Cecilia was responsible for organizing corporate events, hospitality, and travel all over the world, from small groups of 10 to up to 250 people. This experience means there aren't many situations she's unfamiliar with. In addition, her fluency in four languages (English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese) makes Cecilia an essential asset to our team of travel advisors.
