-Owner + Founder, BOLD Digital Marketing Studio-
At BOLD, Ana Carolina is the team’s fearless leader. Her passion, dedication, and drive for her work make her a leader par excellence: brave, creative, empathetic, organized, and inspiring. She is the engine that keeps BOLD running and is always innovating. While she loves to stay engaged in the client management process, Ana Carolina primarily focuses on business development, creating new digital marketing strategies, community engagement, and overseeing all of BOLD’s operations.
Ana Carolina is a native of Venezuela. She founded BOLD after realizing there was a huge need for her services and for connecting others with the Hispanic market. This allowed her to help others ahead of herself, a motto she follows in her personal life as well. She gained much of her experience within the Hispanic market through her work with Entravision, a diversified global media, marketing, and technology company that reaches and engages Latino consumers in the U.S., and Prospera, an economic development, a nonprofit organization specialized in providing bilingual assistance to Hispanic entrepreneurs trying to establish or expand their business.
She was recognized as one of Orlando Business Journal’s “40 under 40”, recognized with the Distinguished Leadership Award by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Orlando, was the recipient of MADcon’s “Top 100 Marketing and Advertising Leaders Award,” was nominated for the Outstanding Young Woman Leader Award by La Prensa’s Mujeres Destacadas and was also recognized by Florida Governor Rick Scott for her contributions to the “Keep Florida Working” project. In addition, BOLD was awarded the Orlando Business Journal’s Diversity in Business Award and was recognized as “Small Business of the Month” by the Orlando Magic.
In 2021, Ana expanded her reach by starting a podcast called “Hablamos Spanglish” which acts as a meeting space to tell the stories behind many Hispanics who immigrated to the U.S. and started their lives from scratch, many of them unknown but with fascinating and noteworthy paths. The purpose of this podcast is to inspire other Latino immigrants, educate the general market through these stories, and showcase the positive impact they are making in the U.S.
She is a born community leader, serving and volunteering for various organizations such as the Heart of Florida United Way and ALPFA Orlando (Association of Latino Professionals for America). She was previously active with the American Marketing Association (Orlando Chapter), the American Cancer Society, and the Hispanic Chamber of Metro Orlando, just to name a few.
Furthermore, she has an incredible zest for life, she is always motivating, guiding, and supporting those, who like her, have a passion for digital marketing and want to see their business grow.
Ana Carolina earned a Bachelor’s in Advertising and Public Relations from the University of Central Florida in 2010. After following in her mother’s footsteps, she moved to Europe and completed a Master’s in Digital Marketing from the Universitat Autonoma of Barcelona in Spain.
She currently resides in Orlando, Florida, and has a sweet fur baby named Kahlua.
