Yoania grew up in Cuba and moved to Miami with her family when she was 14. She discovered her sense of adventure from an early age and started traveling the world after finishing high school. Her passion for travel has led to many adventures, including visiting shrines and temples in Kyoto, hiking in Machu Picchu, exploring the Galapagos Islands, whale watching off the coast of North Brazil, and snorkeling in Thailand.
She decided to make her passion for travel a career and became a certified travel agent, selling customized vacations to destinations in Europe, Latin America, and southern Africa for over 10 years. She worked for American Airlines Vacations and two boutique firms that specialize in high-end eco-tours and safaris for discerning clientele.
Wanting to expand her horizons, she moved to New York and acquired skills in logistics, marketing, and event planning working for a European telecommunications company. After 10 years she decided to move back to sunny Miami. She is happy to be back working in the industry she loves and learning as much as possible about the yachting world in her role as Yacht Charter Assistant.
In her free time, you can find Yoania biking around Miami and Miami Beach, discovering new local places and eateries, or brushing up on her Italian and French language skills.
Yoania holds a certification in Travel Agency Functions, an AA degree in Interior Design, and a Bachelors in International Relations.
