Ina was born in Venezuela and has spent the greater part of her life in Texas. In 2014 she completed a Master’s degree in Applied Geography from Texas State University with a focus on Resource and Environmental Studies. Her passions include ecology and healthy ecosystem functioning, particularly that of river and ocean networks. With hope to do her part in closing the loop between resource extraction and disposal, Andreina spends most of her time learning about or actively participating in improving environmental processes (including restoration or conservation efforts, sustainable food production, and proper waste management). Before joining TreeFolks, Andreina worked as a Planner for the City of Austin Development Services Department.
