After graduating with a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Business Administration, I was fortunate enough to have built a professional career working for companies operating in different industries such as retail, food & beverage, oil & gas, construction, and real estate. My experience has mostly delved in operations, market research and business development. Prior to coming to the United States, I worked as a Project Manager handling the sales & operation of several real estate community projects located in different regions of the Philippines.

My love for marketing has pushed me to pursue a second master’s degree – this time in International Marketing with specialization in Project Management, which I was able to obtain with Academic Distinction and an Outstanding Peer of the Year award. During business school, I was exposed to digital marketing, which furthered my knowledge and experience in email marketing, paid search & social media advertising. After graduating, I worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant in Digital Media & Communications for the same school and as a Digital Marketing Analyst, assisting a former professor in her consulting business by conducting competitive research, website, and social media audit for clients.

Working for a marketing & advertising agency has always been a dream. Now, I am living it with Quillin as its Advertising Account Executive. I find excitement in the fast-paced environment that working in this field offers. I also get to practice my passion for both project management and digital strategy development while working with the most amazing team of people who just love what they do.

During my MBA, I was given the opportunity to participate in an exchange program with a business school in France and develop friendships with students from around the world. The experience allowed me to explore neighboring countries during my 5-month stay which made me realize how much I enjoy traveling. I have already visited 20 countries, and I intend to add more to that list. Hopefully soon!

You may probably hear me using “Marv” as my coffee-shop name as I figured it would be easier to spell than my first name. Most of the time, I just end up answering to whatever name I hear them call me.
