here's my story.
Hi. Hola. Ciao. I'm Valeria.
A self-proclaimed dreamer, grammar geek and storyteller with a serious case of wanderlust, I can most often be found contemplating somewhere near the water. In addition to beach-combing, my interests include: traveling, writing, reading, cooking, dining, listening to live music and taking in the outdoors -- preferably at the same time and in the company of my husband and golden retriever (whom you're likely to meet on these pages along the way).
Originally from Buenos Aires and raised in Miami Beach, I'm fluent in Spanish, Malbec and fútbol. Between the hours of 9 and 5, I'm a communications consultant for travel, tourism and hospitality brands and have worked in the travel/tourism PR industry for nearly a decade, specializing in communications strategy, media relations and editorial content. I have a B.S. in Public Relations and an M.A. in Strategic Communications and a Heart-Driven Passion for Writing and Editing. Recently, I've begun to spread my wings as a Freelancer, a journey that has already granted me the honor of collaborating with a handful of lifestyle publications, including Darling and Electrify magazines, and an endeavor on which I hope to connect and partner with many other likeminded brands. If you're in need of words, edits or someone to help craft, tell and/or share your story, I may be your type.
Always the optimist, I believe that connecting with and learning from one another is the surest way to break down barriers and spread some joy. Consider this site my virtual olive branch of sorts -- and by all means, please do stay in touch!
