LAURA OLMEDA

ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT

My past career focus and expertise was as a Bi-lingual advertising professional with extensive production and customer service experience, fluent in Spanish and English. As a Media Asset Manager, with the assistance of my staff we identified, organized, and managed media assets, metadata and physical storage for both retail and corporate clients. Maintained detailed inventory of media assets for advertising agencies and their clients. Problem solving, troubleshooting, client management support, planning and implementing pro-active procedures were daily challenges. Established excellent relationships with key personnel within production companies and editorial houses, organized information and provided a detailed record for easy reference on projects for the client. Successful in providing media assets to creative personnel for time sensitive projects to remain within the project budget and meet distribution deadlines. Detail oriented, high degree of data entry accuracy and time sensitivity. Efficient and cost effective customer service with excellent account maintenance. A productive and successful career. In the last five years, I have devoted much more of my time and skills to volunteering in the community. I have always felt the need to give back, or better said, "Give Forward". My commitment to our youth in the Latino community is important to me as a mother and grandmother. Faces of a Mother is an interactive group that meets monthly with women of the community to provide support and resources to mothers. Currently, we are making a difference in the lives of our youth in the local high school with young professionals and mentoring with Life Directions. As a Tutor in the All Saints Literacy Center, it is extremely rewarding in assisting adults to learn and be able to speak, read, and write the English language. In the words of Life Directions for the future of our next generations: “Encourage and Motivate!” “Mentor and Activate!”
