Born and raised in Manhattan, I moved to Miami in 1980. During that time, I lived in Kendall and worked in Brickell and Coral Gables, spending my leisure time at many of the local hangouts like The Taurus, The Mutiny and the Coconut Grove Playhouse. I have lived in Miami for many years, witnessing the many changes that have taken place in the Grove and have always dreamed of living here. That dream finally became a reality when I moved to my home in the Douglas/Grand area in February, 2019.
My professional background is in marketing, advertising and communications. I have held senior management positions in ad agencies in New York, Chicago and Miami. During 2007-2017, I was the co-founder and COO of Hola Networks, the first online advertising network dedicated to the US Hispanic market.
I am a member of the Coconut Grove Women’s Club and a prior member of the CG Chamber of Commerce. When I first moved here, I volunteered with Grace Inc. to distribute housing questionnaires. Later, during the Covid crisis, I volunteered to bring food to my West Grove neighbors and provided food to both the Thelma Gibson Health Initiative and our local “Freegerator” on Grand & Plaza.
I joined the CGVC board because I want to be an active member in my community. There are many issues facing this ever-changing neighborhood, and I want to serve by reaching out to our neighbors and make their voices heard. Based on my professional experience, I think I can best do this by serving on the Visibility and Civics/Park/Green committees.
Thank you for this opportunity and I hope to meet you all soon in the future.
