Our story


We're obsessed with helping you stand out in a crowded world by building your brand.  


We believe marketing is empathy. Empathy is love and the strategy we use to connect.

We're two Latinas — by way of Colombia and El Salvador — who live, breathe, and love all things marketing and branding.

Our love story begins a decade ago (what now feels like centuries) over soup and salad at a Pret a Manger in Washington, D.C.


At the time, we had fast-paced demanding jobs, Maritza at the Washington Business Journal and Pamela at the Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. We instantly connected — from business to babies — and have been like sisters ever since.  

Fast forward 10 years later, the entrepreneurial stars aligned, and Captiva Branding was born. 

Combining 30 years of crafting strategies and content, we’ve joined forces to help simplify marketing so you can captivate your audience's minds, hearts, and wallets.

When you work with us, you’ll get high-touch service, creative and strategic thinking...AND good vibes — at a fraction of the cost of a big agency, without compromising quality or results.

Let’s build your brand together.
