Virgen extra / Miami

Miami is a vibrant city filled with optimism. It sets the stage for a diverse ecosystem and the ability to connect with people and companies from all over the world. And that’s just what we aim to do from our office space on Lincoln road, which we invite you to visit anytime. We’ll be delighted to talk shop, tennis, or swing by that really good Mexican joint right around the corner. 

Lara Hillman

Managing Director


We thought that ‘makes-sure-things-happen-the-way-we-set-out-for-them-to-happen’ was just too long of a job title. Lara specializes in surpassing the expectations of the companies we work with and keeping the order of the beautifully chaotic aspects of our projects. As a graduate from the University of Georgia with a degree in Consumer Journalism, Lara began her career at one of the largest advertising agencies in the United States. She worked on national accounts developing TV, radio, print, and digital advertising seen around the country. Lara took those skills in-house to manage the marketing departments of two prestigious law firms in Miami, where she developed and implemented firm-wide marketing initiatives, including strategic rebrands, implementation of brand guidelines, ad campaigns, website and blog development, and email marketing and social media strategies, to name a few. Lara thrives under pressure. And really, really loves dogs.
