Early in her career, Yamila was the NY Correspondent for Canal de Noticias NBC, a 24-hour Spanish-language news network broadcast in 18 Latin American countries, and worked as a producer, reporter, and anchor for Univision and Telemundo.
She acquired her financial expertise at Bloomberg TV and Radio where she held various positions, including Head of Production for their five European channels broadcast in five different languages, Executive Producer for Bloomberg Spanish-language TV and Radio, and Executive Producer for Bloomberg Networks, which syndicated over 200 daily reports to 700 affiliates from Canada to Argentina. Her command of English, Spanish, and French combined with her solid experience as a producer and journalist, have positioned Yamila as a sought after resource by international media platforms.
