Retired U.S. Ambassador
As a Diplomat in the U.S. Foreign Service, Rose Likins focused her activity in Latin America and she worked in Mexico, Paraguay, El Salvador and Peru, in the last two as an Ambassador. She lived the coup that removed Stroessner from power in Paraguay and the 2001 earthquakes in El Salvador but she fell in love with Latin America and its strong optimism towards life. She has been an advisor in the private sector since she retired in 2013.
