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. In 2015, she joined the Marketing and Events Committee for The American Chamber of Commerce – Pacific Chapter where she volunteers her time at events from inception to take-down. In 2017, she’d grown such an affinity for Graphic Design that an education in Marketing was just not enough, and enrolled herself in British Columbia Institute of Technology's (BCIT) Graphic Design program with the goal of amalgamating her fields of study to become a little Marketing & Graphic Design powerhouse.
