Aurelia Flores

Aurelia Flores - Powerful latinas
Descent: Mexican


ask the expert

Aurelia Flores founded Powerful Latinas.com in 2007 as a company that gathers together Latina women to learn from and share with one another. Powerful Latinas.com is all about “Latinas working together in an evolving Latino culture to create a better world!” and uses the tools of the internet to do so.

Aurelia strongly believes women learn from other women, no matter where they are in their career or life path.

Aurelia understands what it means to overcome obstacles. After becoming pregnant at 15 and while in an abusive relationship with her son’s father, she graduated from high school a year early and went immediately to college. She separated from the unhealthy relationship and went on to receive her law degree from Stanford Law School, and then was awarded a post-graduate Fulbright Fellowship to study in Mexico City. Aurelia undertook these challenges as a single mother, raising and supporting her son all the while. From these experiences came many valuable lessons.

Aurelia has been practicing corporate law for over ten years, first at a prominent law firm and now for a Fortune 500 company where she specializes in intellectual property. Aurelia also volunteers for various non-profit organizations.
