Marya was a core organizer in the team that launched Miami’s powerful One Billion Rising celebration in 2012 and joined the Global Coordinator team in 2013.

From those grassroots beginnings, One Billion Rising Miami brought together stakeholders and ordinary citizens to envision and plug into the global solidarity necessary to change the statistics of violence against women and girls, while focusing locally on the greatest challenges facing the South Florida community. This powerful gathering has been transformed into a Women’s Fund Miami-led monthly meeting where public and private entities, government civil servants, activists, volunteers and all those concerned with creating Freedom From Violence join forces and resources.

Marya is a bilingual English/Spanish Music and Artist Marketing Executive with over 25 years of international experience in the realms of entertainment and contemporary culture, Media and Artist Relations, Talent Booking and Artist Management.
