Maria Lopes

Content Specialist

CX Digital Lifecycle Journeys EMEAR

Content Specialist for Digital Lifecycle Journeys EMEAR, based in sunny Lisbon. After working for 3 years in the Event Management industry in Portugal, I had a call from the wild wild world and embraced a flight attendant career in the Middle-East in 2011. Apart from traveling I dedicated most of the time to writing, blogging and sharing my travel adventures with the support of a Portuguese online newspaper.

In 2018 I decided to change my career path, packed 6 amazing years of being an expat and returned home to pursue a career in Digital Marketing and Communication. After engaging in a Digital Marketing course, Cisco opened the doors of opportunity for a totally new challenge in Customer Experience and Communication.

I´m a passionate foodie, addicted to all kinds of outdoor activities and my heart belongs to all kinds of writing formats.
