Kristina Maury is a Harvard-educated professional, serial entrepreneur and author with 6+ years of business development and management experience. Her areas of expertise include eCommerce Marketing & Management, Branding, Advertising/PR, Journalism, and Law. She received a BA in Broadcast Journalism from Howard University and a JD from Harvard Law School.
Early in her career she worked at a Los Angeles-based advertising & PR firm where she worked on developing a brand identity and a PR strategy for The Islands of The Bahamas, the firm's largest account.
After attending law school Kristina decided to tap back into her creative roots, and she founded an artisanal gourmet candy e-commerce business from start-up to generating year-over-year ROI 600%. Always an innovator, she developed the world's first interactive, virtual online application that allowed consumers to visually customize their own confections. The brand identity for her confectionary business was so effective that she received a cookbook deal from a major international publisher, and her company was featured in numerous publications including Southern Weddings Magazine, InStyle.com, and Candy & Snack today.
Kristina has collaborated with high-profile companies like Fendi, Christian Louboutin, Giorgio Armani, Veuve Clicquot, Perrier-Jouët, Victoria's Secret, L'Occitane, Korres Skin Care, Kate Somerville Skin Care, Disney, ESSIE, and Marvel Comics to develop branded promotional items.
She has innate talent, a chic aesthetic and a keen grasp on what makes people buy.
Kristina resides in Los Angeles and has two adorable dogs, Butch and Benji. In her free time she enjoys reading, watching documentaries, cooking fancy meals, ordering the most interesting cocktails on the menu, and buying things that come in pretty packages.
