Gaby Ringvald (she/her), Senior Social Strategist at Pereira O’Dell
Gaby uses being a digital native and cultural zeitgeist to her advantage, as she is always keeping a finger on the pulse of social media and trends. Currently, her role is a senior social strategist at Pereira O’Dell, a full-service advertising agency. She is responsible for implementing social strategies, overseeing community engagement practices and developing influencer strategies across both B2C and B2B brands. In her role, Gaby fosters collaboration with people from all over the world. She received her B.S. in Public Relations from the University of Florida and began her career at VMLY&R.
One of her favorite aspects that the Fellowship has offered is access to industry events like SXSW, ADCOLOR and Advertising Week New York. She enjoys the ability to network and learn from the different speakers at these events. Additionally, another part of the program that Gaby has leveraged is the 1:1 Executive Coaching. Working with coach Shameka Brown has propelled her to gain confidence in her everyday role as leader of a team. In her spare time she enjoys traveling and consuming media of all forms, from classic novels to today's Twitter feed.
