Airene started her career working as a customer service representative for various accounts in a BPO company in the Philippines. She later moved to Hewlett-Packard and worked for their operations in Southeast Asia as Order Management Specialist. After 9 years of working in the Corporate world, Airene learned about the opportunity to work from home and was hired by Hands Across the Water to work remotely as its Ride Coordinator and Admin Support. After having been sent to Thailand in 2015 to see and experience what Hands is doing for the children, she fell in love with the organisation and its cause even more. Being a part of Hands and being able to contribute in achieving their mission is something that she is very proud of. 

Airene is a loving partner and mum to Adrian and Devin, and dreams of travelling to many places. She is your go to person for all your ride and fundraising concerns.
