About Mariela

As a true creative at heart, I have always striven to put my passion and attention to detail into my work.

I am currently the Digital Communications Associate at the Constitutional Accountability Center, where I manage the organization’s social media assets and develop social media calendars; and design visual assets for print and digital media, including social media graphics, event materials, and publications. In addition, I manage the organization’s website, monitor and compile news and broadcast clippings about our work, and create and disseminate listserv emails.

I previously worked as a Digital Communications Associate at the International Alliance for Responsible Drinking, a global public health NGO based in Washington, D.C. that works to promote various programs, policies, and initiatives aimed at reducing harmful drinking worldwide. I wrote daily summaries about news pertaining to alcohol-related research, policies, and consumption patterns, designed various materials including newsletters and web graphics, and maintained the company’s social media properties.

In the fall of 2015, I worked as a junior video editor, photographer, and graphic assistant at the Senate Democratic Media Center. I created graphics for various Democratic Senators’ Twitter and Facebook platforms, spliced floor videos and TV interviews for distribution to constituent audiences, and photographed several Congressional events, including press conferences.

I graduated from James Madison University in May 2015 with a B.A. in Media Arts and Design, as well as a double minor in French Language and British Communication and Media.

My skills include copywriting, editing, graphic design, video editing, and web content management and design, as well as French-to-English translation. I have managed social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Brightcove Video, and YouTube. I have also completed Hootsuite’s Social Media Certification program.
