About Maria Gil
Maria studied Fine Arts in Colombia (not Columbia) before moving to San Antonio in 2008. She graduated from San Antonio College in Web Design and Digital Graphic Design which put her on a path to Digital Marketing. She immediately fell in love with the industry and has been involved in strategy, optimization, and campaign management ever since. Maria stumbled upon Leadhub while looking for the right company to work with and “immediately knew [she] had to be part of such a cool bunch”.
What does Maria do for fun?
Maria loves to dance! Salsa and Merengue are her go to’s, but if she’s looking for something more relaxing, you can find her in her backyard curled up with a book and cup of tea (or glass of wine, depending on the weather).
Favorite thing about Leadhub
“We work hard but always find ways to have fun while we are at it.”
Something Leadhubbies never knew…
Maria loves making origami! Something about the neat folds in the paper and the creativity of it is just fascinating!
Favorite quote: “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”

Pets: “I have four rescued fur babies. Alley, the most loving pitty ever, Mila (aka the tail punisher), the sweetest and most social pitty, Pepe Le Pit, my guardian angel and Lola, the fiercest of them all and my shadow (a little terrier mix that literally follows me everywhere).”
Biggest hero: “Paula Scher – Because of her, I learned to love typography.”
