Leyva Leyva, - Eastern Canada

Ricardo Leyva joined our team as Homestay Placement Coordinator in March 2017. He had the opportunity to experience a homestay environment when he was hosted by a Portuguese family in 1997. Originally from Mexico, Ricardo worked for ten years in the airline industry in different departments including Reservations, Special Services, World Tariff, and as a supervisor at the Quality Support Centre.

His passion for travelling and his experience working with clients from all over the world gave him a vast understanding and appreciation of other cultures. He loves meeting new people and visiting new places.
