Natalia hails from Mexico, where she received her BA in International Marketing and worked at an advertising agency before moving to the US. Once in Los Angeles, she worked at Korn Ferry (a talent management/executive recruitment company) but soon realized that her true passion was in entertainment.

An encounter with a person from her past during a gathering organized by the Screen Actors Guild (which she is a member of) changed her life in the best of ways. It was because of that event, that Natalia was able to find out about Promo Pathway. She applied for admission the following day. One month after being admitted, Natalia got a Creative Marketing internship at ABC and six months after that, a full time position in the Entertainment Marketing department with the same company. Natalia is deeply grateful and excited about this new stage of her life and she can’t wait to keep learning and give back. Natalia thanks PromaxBDA, Promo Pathway and Santa Monica College from the bottom of her heart.

Some of Natalia’s favorite things are crying during sad movies and Christmas commercials, last minute trips with no hotel reservations and handcrafts. She loves making people laugh and tends to be a little loud when she’s excited.
