Andreina is originally from the Corozal District, the northernmost district in Belize, but grew up in San Pedro Ambergris Caye with the second largest barrier reef just meters away from home. This life experience nurtured her love and passion for the marine ecosystems, as well as the environment. Through her life, she has been involved in volunteer work with many environmental organisations in Belize and was active in environmental clubs while in school, always aspiring to contribute greatly to the scientific community. Andreina joined the Blue Ventures team on June 2018 to December 2018 as a Field Scientist Intern.

In her free time, Andreina enjoys reading, diving and listening to music.
