Patricia San Pedro
Entrepreneur. Community leader. Author. Patricia San Pedro knows no limits. If she dreams it, she takes action to accomplish it. A native of Havana, Cuba, San Pedro grew up in South Florida and graduated from the University of Miami.
San Pedro made a name for herself in the broadcasting industry at WTVJ NBC in Miami, where she earned three Emmy Awards for her work.
She then expanded her wings internationally as the Corporate Communications Manager and key spokesperson for American Airlines, in Florida, the Caribbean and Latin America.
San Pedro then moved to The Miami Herald & Nuevo Herald as VP of Event Marketing & Community Affairs.
In 2001, San Pedro opened her namesake firm San Pedro Productions and quickly became a market leader in public relations, event and TV production and marketing.
In May 2005, San Pedro published her first book, “Dish & Tell: Live, Love and Secrets” (William Morrow/Harper Collins), co-authored with several friends known as the Miami Bombshells. As an outgrowth of the book, San Pedro now produces “Camp Bombshell”, a women’s-only weekend retreat where women are encouraged to relax, recharge and make time for themselves.
San Pedro’s busy life came to a screeching halt when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008, the same disease that took her young mom’s life, 20 years earlier.
However, from the moment of diagnosis, Ms. San Pedro saw her cancer as an opportunity…something that was brought to her life for a reason. Even when it seemed like the world could potentially cave in on her…she turned it around into a positive, choosing to look at the gifts and blessings behind the disease. She now uses her story to inspire others.
Ms. San Pedro encourages audiences to live a positive and purposeful life with a connection to Spirit, so it can bring forth happiness, balance, harmony and fulfillment. And in the process to have fun and enjoy life to the fullest.
