Hello! My name is Luisana and I am originally from Venezuela. I am a Civil Engineer and Urban Planner by profession. Entrepreneur by nature, innovative and enthusiastic. My passion is to serve and live the city through the senses.
I work as an Engineering Aide II in the Traffic Engineering Division with the city of Saint Paul. I volunteer on the boards of the Twins Cities Society of Hispanic Professionals Engineering (SHPE-TC) and Mujeres Latinas Unidas MN. I am also an English student and a Spanish teacher at the International Institute of Minnesota.
Currently I lead Huellas Latinas, through which I develop community projects in various areas. I am deeply committed to the empowerment of women and emerging leaders, as well as the human and sustainable development of communities.
The best way to get to know the city is by experiencing it through its public and natural spaces, understanding its history and discovering its secrets. Hiking became my best ally to maintain my physical and mental health, and with it, I got to know the city and build meaningful memories. In addition, I also have fun reading, writing, taking pictures, and when the weather permits, I ride a motorcycle with friends.
I feel fortunate to be able to communicate and share knowledge and experiences with you. I hope this initiative serves to create a community among those of us who share the same interests and, furthermore, inspires you to recognize the human side of the city. I want to teach you to experience the city through your senses and hopefully inspire you to live your own adventures.
My Hiking Path since 2021
To develop projects, programs and / or activities that positively impact the immigrant community
and the environment where they are developed.
To connect the Latine community with organizations that offer services and resources that benefit the community, thus improving access to information and promoting cultural immersion processes.
To strengthen and empower the immigrant community by promoting their knowledge, skills and the environments where they develop.
To know and experience the city through the senses, while promoting physical and mental health.
