Valentina is 32 and was born in Santiago De Chile.
She studied Tourism at the capital’s university, and she worked as a tourist guide in the desertic northern region of the country. Inspired by proximity to the Pacific Ocean, she pursued her international diving license. She also lived in the south of Chile, in Patagonia, where she learnt to cook in a tourist structure placed in the famous Torres Del Paine National Park. In 2016 she moved to Spain, where she had the first contact with the nautical world. It’s since then that she has worked on sail boats as a cook and stewardess, around the Caribbean Sea, crossing the Atlantic Ocean, and back to the Mediterranean Sea.
Her menu is particularly varied and enriched with experiences and inspirations absorbed during her voyages all over the world. Her dishes are always made with fresh and natural ingredients. Mediterranean cuisine are her specialties.
Valentina holds her Seaman’s Book, STCW95 certificates and Health Certificate for Seafarers.
She speaks fluent Spanish (native language) and Italian.
Her character is particularly pleasant and she’s always very happy to be on board providing her kind help to the guests and crew.
Discovering nature, especially animals, and engaging with foreign cultures and art is what she loves to do in her free time.
