Episode 189 talks about why Latinas need to pursue careers in tech, featuring Natalie Marino of The Latina Techie. Listen now!
Natalie’s superpower is to empower and uplift women, to create spaces where women feel seen, heard and empowered.
She’s the Founder and CEO of The Latina Techie, a community to serve fellow Latina sisters in finding their voice in STEM, responsible for bridging efficiency gaps while utilizing technology to help create efficiencies and automation in your business practices.
Natalie has earned over a decade of experience working with the intricacies of Professional Employer Organizations (PEO). She began her career in Benefits, which led her to the STEM world by way of Human Resource Information Systems, where she found her true passion. Natalie is known for driving growth, and prestige, while maximizing operational excellence, and delivering technology solutions. She most recently served as Senior Product Owner with ADP in the Global Product and Technology Division of the business.
The Latina Techie is rooted in the commitment to celebrating collaboration over competition. Community is about you, about me, about us, and for that reason, we choose to show up every day with the purpose to serve. Natalie is proud to have partnered and contributed with organizations such as Virtual Mom Collective, Orphaned Starfish Foundation, Women For Success, Tribaja, Spark, and more.
Natalie currently lives in Miami, FL, and uses her free time to practice hot yoga, enjoy her family, capture the outdoor scenery, build memories with her loved ones, and of course, continue learning from the best school—the school of “life.”
