Paola Cocran is the Project Coordinator for Helicopteros de Guatemala located in Guatemala City, Guatemala. She became a Certified Cosmetologist at the Aveda Institute in Baton Rouge where she later entered into salon and styling at Paris Parker in Hammond, Louisiana in 2002. After 3 years she made the decision to dedicate herself fulltime to her children. During the ensuing years, she became bilingual in English, Spanish, and French, and traveled extensively through many parts of both Latin America and Europe. Her international experience continued in 2011 when her family moved to her home country of Guatemala, Central America. It is there that she began to drive new projects such as food and beverage services, equipment and machine acquisition, and health and nutrition. She is an avid athlete and focuses her efforts on helping others find their strengths, teamwork, and overall healthy living. In addition, Paola volunteers her time with her family’s foundation called District of High Performance (DAR) that reaches underserved children in impoverished conditions in Guatemala. Paola volunteers her skills and talents here to develop transformational leadership strategies, fundraising, and international relations. She currently resides in Guatemala City with her husband Christopher and their three children Micah, Lucas and Christopher. She can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
