Her work with the communications team helped to win the PR Week award in the Team of the Year competition in 2016. Prior to joining Coqual, Silvia dabbled in a career that involved fashion. It was through an internship with Dress for Success and during her early career days that she discovered both her love of helping to empower women and the value of working with organizations devoted to causes that contribute to bringing out the greater good of others. She has a keen interest in all things media related, with a focus on Latina and work-equality issues, and she is a member of ColorComm, an organization dedicated to the empowerment of women of color in media and communications.
A native New Yorker, Silvia graduated in 2012 from Fordham University with a BA in sociology and a minor in business administration. Her passions in the off hours include bringing joy to others through her work as a DJ and cooking. Cauliflower is life—just ask her.
