Valentina was born and raised in Colombia. Curiosity has fueled their active and rich life. From graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Medicine and a Master in Business Administration to working in clinical trials. From becoming a key opinion leader for healthcare and social media in Latin America to working with patient engagement, and social media at a pharmaceutical company in the US.
Valentina’s interest in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is infused in all their work. They have served as co-chair of LGBTQIA+ ERGs, been a member of DEI councils, and led the inclusion of gender-neutral bathrooms at her past company. Their experience as Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion workplace champion and education in anti-racism and allyship shape Valentina’s language to be non-gendered, inclusive, and empowering.
Before moving to the US they lived in Canada, Brazil, and Argentina.
