BABE 23: GABI VALLADARES,
Social Media Director @ RCG
Gabriella is a total gem. In addition to being the Director of Social Media at a killer PR firm in Boston, she's also heavily involved with multiple organizations, runs an awesome blog, and of course, has successfully finished grad school in the process of it all. I love that she learned about BWH via one of her colleagues at The Lady Project (another female empowering organization,) further proving that she embodies all things BWH. After perusing her blog, I can also tell that she's one of those gals who is always on top of things and put-together. Teach us your ways, girl, will ya!?
Hometown: Danbury, CT
Current city: Boston, MA
Alma mater: Northeastern University
Degree: B.A. in Communication Studies, M.S. in Corporate & Organizational Communication
Hustle: Director of Social Media @ Regan Communications Group
Babe you admire and why?
Sierra Barter. She’s a force of nature, and the CEO and Co-Founder of The Lady Project: a non-profit women’s networking group that connects, inspires, and showcases amazing women doing awesome things.
Must-have item in your purse?
A book! While I typically bike to work, I occasionally have to take the train. Because our Boston transit system is notorious for simply not working, having a good book handy is key.
What’s one thing you wish you knew more about?
Our world! I realize that’s vague. What I mean is that I wish I knew more about the many, many cultures around the globe. I’d like to focus some energy each week into understanding more about different cultures. Perhaps that’s on my list for 2017!
If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?
Exploring Europe! I’ve never been and I’m itching to go like nobody’s business. First up: Ireland!
Tell us about your hustle:
I currently handle the social media capabilities for Regan Communications Group. I’m not only creating content for my clients, I also manage the social team and support the other Regan PR teams in our Boston headquarters as well as our offices along the east coast. It’s a fantastic gig and I’m honored to play a part in establishing Regan as a social media go-to for clients large and small. On the side, I am one of the City Managers for the Boston chapter of The Lady Project. I also run a lifestyle blog called ByGabriella!
