Hello! My name is Diana Pastrana and I am a workplace consultant at M&M Office Interiors in Middleton, WI. As a workplace consultant, I help local businesses plan their office space and acquire furniture. I moved to Madison for college and never left! What I love most about Madison is its entrepreneurial vibe and the support structure we have for business startups. I am millennial through and through, and I firmly believe Madison is a great community to live and work for young professionals! I run the social media coordination for a couple nonprofits. 1 Million Cups is a platform for entrepreneurs to present their ideas to the community, and Culture Community is an organization that is built to bring enthusiasts together to foster culture as a focal point of every organization. I am very passionate about both groups and they are great networking opportunities for Madison professionals! I am also the proud mother of two rambunctious kids. Rafael was born in 2010 and Luceli in 2012. I adore this city for all the beautiful parks and free events focused around families. Of all the good options, I think our favorite thing to do around Madison lately has been playing Pokémon Go while checking out State Street, the capitol, the lakes, the arboretum, and the zoo! I am always looking to connect with new people! Please reach out and connect with me on LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/in/dianarpastrana/ or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
