María Pía received a degree in Engineering in Foreign Trade from Polytechnic School of Chimborazo (ESPOCH) in Ecuador and an MBA at UIDA University. Her experience includes working at the BCS ÖKO Garantie regional office.
She has been involved in the organic community in Ecuador for more than 16 years, providing services for two certification bodies. She started working right out of high school to be able to plan trips in and out of Ecuador. She believes that all kind of work dignifies man.
María Pía likes working for QCS because it is a fair alternative for organic producers. Throughout these years organic certification has allowed her to meet all kinds of people and see the hard work of Ecuadorian farmers. Her phrase is: “Always do what is right, not what is convenient.”
She loves her family, and that includes her dogs. She enjoys traveling, especially time spent outdoors. She loves parties where family and friends come together to celebrate (eating, cheers and dancing).
