English/Spanish Speaking Facilitator

My name is Isabel Mosquera. I am an Ecuadorian, but I lived in Canada for many years and speak English. I have been a Facilitator for 4 years. I have assisted dozens of Expats in obtaining their Visas, Cedulas, Translations, Health Insurance, housing and much more. These services are available as one fee package or individually. I own a car, so transportation is always included at no extra charge. I have always gotten my clients their Visas, even under the most difficult of circumstances, such as unreadable fingerprints for FBI reports. I offer free consultations, either by telephone, email or in person. I am at the Immigration office on a very regular basis, so I am knowledgeable about the new Immigration Law and am happy to share my knowledge with you. I will be happy to provide you with references. Please feel free to contact me at isabelmmosquera@hotmail.com, on my MagicJack at 647-955-3262 or my cell phone at 099-960-3663.

Shrubs make cooking easier and food and drinks taste better.

Almost unknown in Ecuador, Shrubs are the rage in the hottest bars and restaurants in the states.

Basil
Garlic
Oregano, Thyme, and Rosemary

Use alone or combine shrubs and infused vinegar to find just that right flavor and sweetness in dressings, marinades, sauces, teas, craft cocktails, and alcohol-free fruit spritzers.

1 ½ oz. Tequila
1 T. Piña Shrub
2 t. Basil Infused Vinegar
½ lime squeezed
Splash of Güitig
