Lorena Cooke

It's difficult to consolidate 15+ years of diverse, progressive experience into one, definitive job position or title. I've been a marketing assistant, vice president of marketing, director of operations, marketing & sales, and most recently, chief executive officer for my own company.

If I could reduce my collective experience to one title, it would be "visionary." And if I could describe my experience in three words, they would be: strategic, creative, and results-driven.

I specialize in developing marketing plans and strategies that are both creative and data-driven. I have a proven track record of increasing brand awareness and sales revenue through effective marketing initiatives. Most importantly, I'm a team player who knows how to get results.

Hi. I'm Lorena Cooke. Welcome to my little corner of the internet.

What I'm Good At


Good leaders get the job done. Great leaders inspire others to do their best work. I've been in leadership positions for most of my career, and I've learned a lot about what it takes to be an effective leader.

Strategic Planning

Any good marketing strategy starts with a solid plan. I have experience developing long-term plans as well as short-term campaigns. I'm excellent at identifying objectives, target markets, and key performance indicators.


I have a strong analytical mind, and I'm always looking for ways to optimize and improve. I'm excellent at identifying patterns and trends, and I know how to use data to inform decision-making.

Creative Thinking

I have a knack for coming up with creative solutions to problems. I'm not afraid to think outside the box, and I'm always looking for new and innovative ways to achieve results.

Project Management

I have experience managing large-scale projects from start to finish. I'm well-versed in project management methodologies and tools, and I know how to keep a project on track.


I like to get my hands dirty. I'm not afraid to roll up my sleeves and do the work myself. I've been known to jump in and help with implementation when needed.
