Angélica Pérez, PhD is best known as the creative force, Publisher and CEO of NEW LATINA. Pérez’ career has been anchored by a driven desire to empower others, especially women and her Latino community. It is this determination and her background as a clinical psychologist that led her to further explore the varying dimensions of today’s Latina woman, thus coining the identity of the New Latina.
Her distinct life experiences as an entrepreneur, psychologist, and ambitious Latina, have positioned her to be an invaluable resource to media seeking greater understanding and insights on the multifaceted dimensions of the growing Hispanic market and their contributions to the ever evolving multicultural American society.
