About the Host, Ana
Soy guatemalteca, casada, tengo dos hijos. Psicóloga educativa por lo que trabajo en una universidad o escuela de negocios en la ciudad de Guatemala. Me encanta bailar e ir al gimnasio para mantenerme sana física y mentalmente. Disfruto trabajando en la computadora preparando las clases que imparto en el área de recursos humanos en la licenciatura y maestría de la institución en la que imparto docencia. Los fines de semana, los paso en Jocotenango, Sacatepéquez, municipio que está ubicado contiguo a la ciudad de Antigua; cuando no tengo huéspedes, ya que disfruto con mi familia de la tranquilidad y de la comodidad de la casa y sobre todo de la tradición que Antigua, mantiene vigente en toda época del año. Me encanta leer, ir a la playa y asistir semanalmente a una reunión de crecimiento y desarrollo personal con un grupo de señoras. Disfruto viendo películas con mis hijos y mi esposo, al igual que videos de cantantes que me han gustado a través del tiempo. Me gusta toda clase de música aunque prefiero la salsa, en general música alegre pero también romántica. Disfruto enormemente mis cátedras en la universidad y me gusta relacionarme bien con mis alumnos y alumnas.
Investigo constantemente sobre los temas que imparto por lo que casi siempre en el tiempo libre durante la semana estoy en Internet o leyendo libros o periódicos para actualizarme.
Salir a desayunar o almorzar con mi familia es también una predilección. Me encanta salir alcampo, o a lugares turísticos, lo cual comparto con toda mi familia, soy muy buena anfitriona y esto también lo comparte mi familia, pues hacemos amistades perdurables fácilmente. Me gusta atender a las personas y darles las facilidades que necesiten para hacer de su estancia en mi casa, una estancia sana e inolvidable, ya que el ambiente de la misma lo propicia.
Un viejo refrán me viene a la mente Has bien y no mires a quién, creo es parte de mi filosofía de vida.
