“The idea that projects I work on bring emotion to complete strangers truly inspires me.”

Yashira counts event planning, public speaking, and fundraising among her many strengths, and she has the experience to back it. She has successfully led six-figure fundraising efforts for non-profits, regularly produced high-budget, multi-touchpoint events, and given speeches to universities, schools, and non-profits on topics such as volunteerism, self-image, political/social issues, and diversity. Yashira employs proven techniques and tools in her project management approach, with SmartSheet being her favorite, to ensure her teams and clients are aligned every step of the way. Yashira received the 2018 AL DÍA Women of Merit Award and was recognized as an influential Philadelphian by the Fitler Club in 2020.
