Carmen Portela

Girl Boss, that’s the best way to describe Carmen Portela, Founder and Chief Social Media Strategist of Synapse Social plus Chief Executive Officer of Local Guest. No questions asked, Carmen is a visionary and a pioneer in the field of social media communications in Puerto Rico. With over 15 years of experience in retail and experiential marketing, coming up with kick-ass strategies, flawless executions and even viral hashtags  are some of her strong suits. Through her travels representing Puerto Rico, a place she’s passionate about, she learned how refreshing experiencing a place could be when you get to do it with a local. One thing lead to another and Local Guest was born. Local Guest is a company dedicated to create authentic experiences, while helping develop the Island’s economy and create opportunities for local talent.
