Based in Philadelphia, PA, I have built many years of expertise as a bilingual (Spanish) marketing professional with project management experience. I help businesses grow by establishing a presence in new markets. Being able to market a physical place as a product has allowed me to be well versed in building audiences through content, digital, and event marketing. 

 

Beginning my official career at Select Greater Philadelphia (Select), a council of the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia, in February 2014, I grew from being a business development and marketing intern to an associate of investor relations and business expansion services in July 2014. From my associate position, I earned the opportunity to be a specialist in July 2016 which lead to my most recent role as the coordinator for Select in July 2018.

 

Throughout my professional career, I have demonstrated a proven track record in project management while delivering value to the stakeholders within Select. Creating and implementing various signature programs and event lifecycles such as Welcome to Greater Philadelphia and Breaking Ground to creating a new program series, the Connector Series. In 2018, I assisted in creating and contributed as a podcast producer for Growing Greater, a radio and podcast series focused on highlighting economic development stories within and outside of the Greater Philadelphia region. By managing various projects including the RFP response to Amazon’s announcement of a second headquarters and numerous international delegation visits, I have helped establish Greater Philadelphia as the place to live and conduct business.

 

I received my BBA with a focus in International Business and a concentration in Marketing from Temple University in 2014. I am a Lenfest Scholarship Program awardee and I continue to advance my education almost yearly through a variety of courses offered by the Dale Carnegie Training program, the Community College of Philadelphia, and Drexel University.
