From a very young age, I’ve been apart of various community-based organizations like 4-H, Breakthrough Miami (formally known as Summerbridge), as well as, participating in socially conscious projects while at Florida A & M University.  In the past six years, I’ve worked as an entrepreneur designing and providing innovative public relations solutions. 

 

With a specialty in storytelling, I’ve had the opportunity to help brands connect, empower, and educate the masses. Through graphic design and branding strategies, I curated and developed projects that supported various social conscious initiatives including the fight against homelessness, supporting women in distress, back to school initiatives, and even uncovering the true story behind brands like Uncle Nearest Whiskey. 

 

I believe in empowering others to reach their full potential- through innovative and out of the box thinking.

I am bilingual Spanish, a great multi-tasker and always eager to learn.
