A Bit About Me

I am a certified marketing professional and the founder of a boutique agency, bringing over 12 years of experience in digital and brand marketing for both start-ups and blue-chip tech enterprises. In 2023, I established a boutique marketing agency with a unique approach, seamlessly integrating innovative digital strategies with timeless brand marketing principles for maximum impact.

During my tenure as the Head of Marketing for Samsung SDS America, I led the marketing function for the Americas including spearheading public relations efforts, managing agency and partner relations, overseeing website redesigns, and optimizing marketing budgets to achieve business objectives. My expertise spans across Digital Marketing, Brand Management, AI-Optimized Marketing, Event Planning & Execution, Partner Marketing, Public Relations, Account-Based Marketing, and Copywriting & Editing.

I earned my bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a major in Marketing from the Rochester Institute of Technology, laying the foundation for my professional journey. Outside of work, I've recently developed a passion for football Sundays, thanks to my husband (Let's go Jets). As an Afro-Latina and a transplant from the Dominican Republic, I cherish my upbringing surrounded by the vibrant music and flavors of my homeland, from living steps away from Yankee Stadium to residing in the heart of El Barrio. Now, I am proud to call West Milford, NJ home as I enjoy all the beautiful Hudson Valley has to offer.
