Paulina Gual joined our team as a consultant in January 2017.
‘I was born and raised in Mexico City. I have a degree in Chemical Engineering from the National Autonomous University of Mexico, with a minor in Environmental Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles. I worked for some years in fuel trading and logistics, which eventually made me realise how desperately we need to adjust our lifestyles to reduce our environmental impact. I then decided to resign and study again so I could pursue a career in sustainability. I’ve been living in the Netherlands for a little more than two years now and have graduated from an MSc in Industrial Ecology from TU Delft and Leiden University. I now look forward to giving shape to sustainability at Blonk Consultants! The best thing about living in the Netherlands is cycling everywhere, which in Mexico City can be a bit of an extreme sport. My favourite thing to do in my free time is dancing. I’ve done everything from ballet to street dance, and I once even danced professionally for a theatre company.’
