Born and raised in Cuzco, Charito has always loved cooking, she thinks it was what she was born to do. Charito lived in and around Cuzco for the past 26 years. She first met SFS students in 2015 while working for the conservation agency ACCA, when SFS Peru was based in a previous location. She began working at the current center, near Iquitos, in August of 2019. Charito likes cooking everything in the kitchen, especially vegetables and meats. Outside of work, Charito loves to travel. Her favorite place she has ever been to, though, is the rainforest!
