About me & my work:

With 15 years of experience building Latin America’s most influential business community, I founded Latam Board LLC (LaB) to guide companies and non-profits seeking inroads in Latin America. Previously, I was the chief architect and brand manager of the Group of Fifty (G50), an organization founded by leading thinker and best-selling author Moisés Naím. Responsible for strategy and direction of the business network, I identified and recruited Latin America’s most distinguished philanthropists and CEOs. I also tripled the participation of female executives and launched the Millennium Leaders (ML50), a network of entrepreneurs under 40 years of age. Bilingual and multicultural, I forged relationships and work closely with partners in leading organizations in Singapore, Chile, Spain and many countries and cities in between. From 2004 to 2009, I led the G50 program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and served as corporate programs manager for Latin America for Foreign Policy magazine. Committed to giving back, I continue to serve on the board of the G50 and was adviser to the founders of the Participatory Budgeting Project and PACEMD. Based in Brooklyn NY, I hold a master in public and nonprofit management from New York University and a bachelor of arts in international affairs from The George Washington University.
