Adriana spearheads the education program, external speaking engagements and internal staff events all while providing support to the Graphic Design team when necessary. The education program/industry events focus on teaching importers, exporters, carriers, and the like, the importance of customs compliance while getting goods across international borders efficiently, accurately and with the least amount of exposure to delays.
