Welcome to the Puentes adventure!
Puentes Abroad was crafted through the unique combination of educational and professional experiences of its founder, Ann Glotzbach Noguer. Ann has been building bridges between businesses, organizations, people, cultures, and age groups for many happy years, which naturally led her to design and implement this comprehensive and impactful international program in Buenos Aires.
Ann's professional path has always focused on social impact, and she has worked in both nonprofits and for-profits in Argentina and the U.S. Before Puentes, Ann opened the Argentina office for the innovative recycling company TerraCycle and then served as the regional director for Brazil and Argentina. She was also the associate director of project development at Asociación por los Derechos Civiles, a top civil rights nonprofit in Buenos Aires. Prior to her time in Argentina, Ann was the associate director of the Jeannette K. Watson Fellowship, which provides professional and academic opportunities for promising undergraduate students in New York City.
She holds a graduate degree in nonprofit management from the Universidad de San Andrés in Buenos Aires and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Princeton University in the U.S.
Originally from Arkansas in the U.S., Ann is now based in Argentina and has called Buenos Aires her "casa" for almost a decade.
