The Fine Print

Daniela Velázquez is Senior Manager of Public Relations at Elasticity.

Daniela has worked with organizations big and small to help them tell their story. Whether it’s narratives or numbers, she knows that a message that resonates can change everything.

Daniela comes to Elasticity from ACLU of Missouri, where as director of communications, she elevated the organization’s profile across the state during one of the busiest times in its history. Prior to that, she worked with the Ferguson Commission and the St. Louis Mosaic Project.

A former journalist, Velázquez honed her communication skills while covering news in Florida (a sunny place for shady people, as the newsgathers say). She worked as an online news producer for Tampa Bay Online (TBO.com) and reported and wrote feature and general assignment stories for The Tampa Tribune and NBC-affiliate WFLA-TV/News Channel 8, as well as reported for the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper. She also worked as the digital content editor at Tampa, Fla.-based WellCare, a Fortune 500 company and government-sponsored health care provider.

She holds a Bachelor of Journalism in News Editorial and a Bachelor of Arts in History, both from the University of Missouri-Columbia.

When she’s not working, you can usually find her indulging her love for powerlifting at the gym, exploring the outdoors on a hiking trail somewhere, spending time with her friends and family, or practicing her Spanish by watching telenovelas.
