WORD Creative, LLC Founder Marketing Marina del Rey, California
About Zoila
Oh boy, where to start! I'm a native New Yorker living in LA with my husband Zach and our 8 month old son, Dakota. I'm a music industry vet and just last year went out on my own to start my creative agency WORD which stands for We Open Real Doors. I have always done side work in the women's space. From Women for Obama to Women's History Month campaigns and feminist t-shirts, women and community have always been important to me. So when I started WORD I made it paramount to represent and uplift female founders with an emphasis on women of color as we usually encounter the most boundaries. We do everything from events to brand strategy to occasional PR. Now, as a new mother, I am focused on legacy and shifting my work to create and nurture more spaces where women can connect, be heard and thrive. We all do better, when we all do better. I know firsthand how I thrive when I have community, I want that for all women. Especially new moms.

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

I would love to assist in community organizing in any capacity and lending my event planning expertise. I also work with a spirit brand and have the ability to support as many events as I see fit. I'm a giver, so whatever I can give, I will!

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Balancing Work & Motherhood

What do you want to achieve in 2018, personally and professionally?

I'm working on a new service for working parents and want to launch our first community building events. Personally, I want to live a happy and relaxing, purposeful life.

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

Funding :)

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I'm looking to connect with women who understand my experience as a mother and a founder/entrepreneur. Moving to a new city from the only real home you've ever known really shakes things up. Add in a baby and what little foundation you thought you had gets rocked. I'm looking to find support and friends I can laugh with through this crazy journey.
