Maria supports the development and implementation of Elemental Excelerator’s brand and creative marketing strategy.  She has spent her career working with iconic brands practicing the value of storytelling to connect with people around important issues.

Prior to Elemental Excelerator

Maria began her career in advertising and worked with Apple’s ad agency TBWA/Media Arts Lab to launch the first iPhone.  She became inspired to make a career shift into sustainability, and spent time in Australia studying sustainable development.  From there she worked in Corporate Social Responsibility and Communications with Disney.  Prior to Elemental, Maria was a Director of Marketing for Emerson Collective – a social impact organization and close partner to Elemental Excelerator.  There she spent time working on storytelling across a variety of issues, always with a focus on her passion for climate.

Outside of the office

Maria lives in the Bay Area with her husband, two young boys and dog.  On the weekends you can find her at the beach, being a soccer mom and trying to fit in a yoga class whenever she can.
