Fabiola Martinez Leyva - Accounting Manager
Born and raised in Mexico, Fabiola brings a wealth of experience with her to Jones and Associates, joining us in September 2018. She graduated as an Industrial Engineer in Mexico City and complemented her studies with a Master Business Administration Degree with a minor in marketing. Given this background, Fabiola worked for 15 years at Coca-Cola FEMSA, the second largest bottler franchise worldwide, utilizing her affinity for mathematics in different departments of the value chain: Logistics, Marketing Research and for the last 8 years Accounting and Finance.
When she moved to Thunder Bay, Fabiola explored the other side of the coin, working with PARO Centre, a non-for-profit organization helping women entrepreneurs access funds to start or grow their businesses. She was also a project coordinator of the women’s leadership project designed to help get more women elected in all levels of government.
Fabiola’s positive and innovative spirit prompted her to co-create a social enterprise called “Entre Tacos y Arepas” with the main purpose of exposing the beauty of the Latin American Culture and enrich the multiculturalism of this city. As a believer of getting back to the community, she also volunteers for her kids’ swimming club and other Committees like the Women in Politics. She loves all sports but her true love is baseball. During her free time, Fabiola enjoys being with her most valuable treasure, her family. She also enjoys learning new languages, and can speak Spanish, English and French.
