Maritza Puello was born and raised in New York City to parents from the Dominican Republic.
From an early age she dreamt of becoming a journalist in “the city that never sleeps.” With plenty of hard work and perseverance she was lucky enough to become one.
A media executive, yoga and meditation teacher, explorer, wellness guide, she loves to read, write, help people and dance! Her love of some of the New York’s landmarks is unparalleled. You can find many of her pictures of Central Park on her social media accounts with the caption #mybackyard. She loves the city and all the cultural diversity it has to offer!
Her professional portfolio includes working for some of the most successful media companies in the world. Maritza strived each step of the way to create to achieve her dream of becoming a journalist and media executive. She has worked alongside the best in the business creating groundbreaking and innovating content.
Maritza is an explorer who takes each day as an opportunity to continue learning about the humanity, Mother Nature, world events, and each day a little more about herself. Whether it’s reading, connecting with others or just sitting in meditation she believes there is endless knowledge to discover. She is an avid storyteller who loves technology and believes that combining the two can inspire people to change the world not only making our planet a better place, but to unifying people in unprecedented ways.
Early in her career, while working “like a madwoman trying to save the world,” she discovered fitness, wellness, yoga and meditation and decided to get certified as a personal trainer and then as yoga instructor. She became a Reiki II practitioner, and studied several other healing arts and meditation techniques. These things enriched her life and work, bringing her greater peace, harmony and abundance in all areas of her world.
Maritza’s love of media, leadership, wellness and mindfulness skills, and nature grows stronger each day as she looks for new ways to continue learning, creating, informing, and sharing with others. This is totally in line with Link Media's vision and mision.
