Aida Ortiz

Publisher Development Specialist

Aida has worn many hats in her professional life. After graduating from the Fashion Design & Marketing at FIDM/Los Angeles with a B.A. in fashion designing & merchandising, she launched her career. From there she took many turns which included court reporting, designing/marketing collections for clients like Metropolitan Art Museum, Disney and QVC at the 1928 Jewelry Co., corporate investing, and training foster parents and social workers for Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. She was the Director of the Gateway to America program for Apogee Physicians where she traveled to India several times to train International Medical Graduates who were seeking medical residency in the United States.

The role she loves most is mother to two amazing sons, Joshua and Conner. Her passions are designing, vintage clothing, opera, disco music, Mexican food and running with her Jack Russell Terrier, Rex.

A high-paced team environment is a driving force for Aida. So joining the JEB team in the summer of 2015 as their Publisher Development Specialist is truly a great fit.
