Raised in Bari, she has lived in Madrid and Milan, two cities where she worked in hospitality, entertainment and finally in the consulting industry.
After completing her studies in economics, she decided to specialize in two different areas.
On one hand, her skills in marketing and communication brought her to deal with marketing strategies, social media management, personal branding strategies and graphic design. She also contributed to the development of several executive training courses in Digital Marketing for global companies and international colleges such as Amazon and H-Farm.
On the other hand, her passion for corporate management led her to cover positions in the administrative area of an accounting firm as well as of companies from different sectors…and that is how she finally ended up taking care of Disal Consulting’s administrative office since its foundation.
In her spare time, she enjoys surfing and “working” as vice curator of Global Shapers Bari – an initiative of the World Economic Forum – where she is involved in projects that create a significant economic, social and political impact in the city where she grew up.
After gaining some valuable experience in the start-up and consulting fields, she worked at the European Central Bank (Frankfurt) and the Bank of Italy (Rome) for two years, first as a trainee and then as an analyst.She contributed to the supervision of two Italian financial institutions, specialising in business plan analysis, risk management, corporate governance and EU standards.
At present, she works as project manager & strategy consultant at Disal Consulting, where she manages projects in research, impact analysis, communication strategy, and executive education.
Before revolutionizing his life dedicating it to content creation on 2.0 platforms, he shaped his personality and analytic skills in consultancy companies such as Deloitte and PwC, where he was staffed on risk management and accounting audit projects for mid- and large-sized companies operating in the automotive, railway and fashion industries.
After three years, he decided to start all over again and build his career on his passions: creative writing and visual communication. To do so, he attended courses at Start2Impact, that helped him improve his knowledge of advertising, SEO, graphic design, and copywriting activities. In Disal, he works on consulting projects related to social media strategy, management and due diligence.
In his spare time, he supports and suffers for his favorite football team and sings out loud Italian songs from the Nineties.
