Born and raised in Venezuela, Mila has an optimistic view on life and infuses passion on any project she takes on. While pursuing her college degree, she worked as a copy writer and held junior roles in PR and advertising. This last experience landed her a Marketing position with Mattel Venezuela’s launch team which changed the course of her career into an unforeseen adventure that took her from Caracas to Los Angeles, Buenos Aires, Miami and Amsterdam.

 

Mila’s curiosity, desire to learn and grow both personally and professionally has always pushed the boundaries of her comfort zone. This also motivated her to move abroad and take on different marketing and management roles with local, regional and global scope in organizations like Mattel, Mead Johnson Nutrition and Nickelodeon. She thrives in fast paced environments where diversity of thoughts and backgrounds make ideas flourish. Her international experience taught her to embrace the challenges and excitement of working with multicultural teams

 

After leading the Northern European brand operations for Nickelodeon linear and digital business based in Berlin; Mila returned to Amsterdam. In 2016, she took time off to refocus, travel and gain additional skills by enrolling in programs on Digital Marketing and Design Thinking. She also followed a Dutch intensive course to improve the language of her new adopted country of citizenship. She is currently consulting, but open to new opportunities.

 

Mila recently started collaborating with a couple of recognized Medical professionals in the US on a project destined to provide affordable quality medical consults to patients across Latin American via a telemedicine platform. She will be exploring further the feasibility of this venture at THNK.
