She helps unblock critical marketing strategy problems and specializes in the creation of breakaway positioning and launch strategies from an extremely creative perspective. Through her real-world experience and training at MA, and senior marketing roles in product marketing, services marketing and corporate marketing, she developed an innovative perspective on marketing to the Hispanic woman which will be published in her first book next fall “ Latinamark”.

Also developed an environmental marketing methodology for helping companies build strong competitive branding positions in the point of sales, which she calls BrandShui, which is a fusion between the perspectives of marketing with the principles of Feng Shui. As a mother of her 24 years old son, Francisco, the Cuban exile Isabel that resides in Puerto Rico for the past 30 years, she devotes her time with her son’s favorite sport, surfing. Being the counsellor and advisory friend addressing new generation’s needs with her healing insights.

Nini devotes part of her time what she calls the “reason for being”, which includes:
SBA Instituto Empresarial para la Mujer collaborator, holistic drumming with a group of women djembe drummers, “Tribu Urbana” that perform for the Cancer Society, healing full moon community drumming, Muscular Dystrophy and local pro environment activities. She is also an avid sailor and long distance cyclist.

Is a well rounded artist that her own technique of sound and color signature of directed abstract makes her a creator of the energy paintings in the integrated art world.
