My life is straight out of a telenovela—full of stories and unexpected twists.

I’m a career coach, ukelele rookie, and badass who went from working with oil cargo ships in a small town in Venezuela to running field marketing at one of the top software companies in the world.

Your career path doesn’t define your success

After moving to San Francisco to be part of the marketing team of a top software company, I discovered how few people there, were like me, and by “like me” I mean: went to a small town college in South America, didn’t start their career in a Fortune 500 company, silicon valley start-up, consulting firm, or spoke English as their second language.

By sharing my story, I want to help you achieve the following 3 things:

  • Embrace the “grit”
  • Build your confidence
  • Act on your strengths to deliver successful outcomes

A big focus for me is to help other Latinos advance their career, which is why most of my MeliTips are in Spanish. Great time to dust off those high school classes and trips to Spain!
