Our Team - US, Canada & Europe - Foreign Relations Department

Patricia Downey - Foreign Relations Director

"I perfectly understand what it is to experience cultural differences, to face a different language and to get to know a new city. But I also know from my own experience that these can all be really wonderful and unforgettable experiences if you can rely on people to support and help you through the process".

Born in Seville, with an English father and a Spanish mother, I spent most of my childhood travelling around the world due to my father’s job. This enriching experience aroused in me a passion for travelling and getting to know new people and places. That’s why I eventually studied Tourism at EUSA (Estudios Superiores y Universitarios de Andalucia) and why I completely understand what it means to experience cultural differences, to face adifferent language and to get to know a new city. I know from my own experience that these can all be really wonderful and unforgettable experiences if you can rely on people to support and help you through the process. That’s why I love my job, as it allows me to help in that process.
