Piera has worked with and developed campaigns for large brands including: Coca-Cola, Hewlett-Packard, Step2, Kellogg’s, Pampers, Procter & Gamble, Macy’s, Sears, and Target among others.

Piera’s years of experience in social media and blogging have given her a firsthand look into the power of blogger/brand relationships and how to create successful campaigns that resonate with moms.
