From Venezuelan Roots to American Dreams
How did a melody-loving pharmacist from Venezuela conquer the strategic boardrooms of America?
I’m Nayli Russo, and my journey from the vibrant songs of the Miranda Symphony to the realms of entrepreneurship and corporate leadership in the U.S. is a testament to the power of dreams, determination, and the will to empower change in your life.
My move to the U.S. brought more than career hurdles; it became a battle against my own doubts and fears. However, I discovered that the biggest challenges indeed bring the greatest rewards. I transformed from feeling stuck and helpless to embracing leadership roles and launching my own business.
As a mother, wife, and professional, I’ve navigated the complexities of corporate America and entrepreneurship. Now, my mission is to be your guide. Whether it's about leadership, breaking barriers, or finding your voice, I combine strategic insight with personal experience to illuminate your path.
My story is one of breakthroughs, from a small town in Venezuela to making an impact in the U.S. With executive experience at the Pittsburgh Pirates and Highmark Inc., and as the owner of AmeriCARE Pittsburgh, I’ve gathered the knowledge it takes to thrive. Equipped with an MBA, PharmD, and various certifications, I’m here not just to play roles but to change the narrative for women in business.

Strategy Consulting Manager
“Being a mentee of Nayli Russo has been pivotal to my development both as a strategy leader and as an overall human being. From salary negotiations to daily habits, she has given me tactical advice and the confidence to take action toward my goals. She challenges me to step outside of my comfort zone, and as a result I have achieved things I wouldn’t have had the confidence to try previously. With Nayli’s mentorship over the last few years, I have gotten two promotions, a new role with a new company, and have unapologetically pursued additional passion projects. I am a better leader because of her guidance, and I couldn’t be more excited about my trajectory!”

“Nayli is energizing, thoughtful, and incredibly smart. Her confidence is contagious. At the start of my career, I feel fortunate to have worked at the same company as her. While she was in a senior leadership position, she took time out of her busy day to meet with me. Beyond providing the most incredible advice, she truly listed to my career goals and hardships. She provided educational materials and told me to never underestimate my leadership potential. Nayli changed my life. After having my first child, there were assumptions that I wanted to work less and have projects taken off my plate. Nayli noticed the spark in my eyes and said that I am now more motivated than ever before. With Nayli’s guidance, I started an MBA program and a new job at a pharmaceutical company at 8 months pregnant with my second child. Nayli continues to serve as my mentor, where she continues to change my life and others.”
