Josy was born in Quito, Ecuador and moved to the Galapagos at the age of 10. To this day, she considers it the best thing that ever happened to her. She attended school in Puerto Ayora on the island of Santa Cruz and studied abroad in the U.S. and Italy. By the time she was 18, she knew she was destined to pursue her dream job as a naturalist guide, and she began guiding in the Galapagos in 2005. She has a bachelor's degree in tourism administration and hotel management from the University Espíritu Santo in Guayaquil. She also obtained a scholarship to pursue master's studies in in tourism management and planning at the University of Alicante in Spain. As Nat Hab's Galapagos Field Operations Manager since 2023 and an Expedition Leader since 2005, Josy's desire is to share her passion for the islands with travelers and to impart an appreciation for their natural environment and wild inhabitants.
