Andres Palacio (Andy) was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. Growing up in the Andes and traveling to the Atlantic quite often, he developed a special passion for nature and the outdoors.
Through attending church, volunteering while attending high school and working in student affairs while going to college, he saw community service as a way to give back to the communities he’s lived in.
Though he has a dual degree in Communication and Business Administration as well as a Master’s in Business Administration, he has seen how the student affairs field can have such a positive impact on students and their overall development as agents of change in the world. Thus, he’s decided to continue working in this field for the 4th year in a row and in Panama, he’s been able to connect with the local community as well.
Andy is beyond excited to work in Bocas and provide a safe and enjoyable environment for all attendees.
