On-Demand Marketing Services


I founded Solange Was Here Marketing Agency to enable, empower, and enhance the impact of social ventures, nonprofits, and mission-driven brands. 

As a seasoned marketing leader with vast experience growing awareness, demand, and revenue for startup and high-growth companies, it represents the culmination of my marketing expertise coupled with my deep commitment to community and civic engagement.

With a career spanning industries and disciplines – from brand management to corporate communications, product marketing to demand generation – I now deliver targeted marketing strategies to organizations making a positive impact on people and planet.

As Executive Director of Joy to the World Namibia, I operate a nonprofit supporting a K-7th grade school in northern Namibia. I manage the Torrey Pines Conservancy’s membership and donor portfolio as its Development Director. I serve on the Old Globe Theater’s Community Advisory Committee, guiding the implementation of the institution’s Social Justice Roadmap and its $2 million Social Justice Fund. And I advise the San Diego Mayor and City Council on matters impacting local women and girls as an appointee to the City of San Diego’s Commission on the Status of Women

I am dedicated to deploying proven marketing practices to amplify your message, activate your community, and help you achieve your mission. Let’s get started.
