Zinelle Mackro’s bio:

Zinelle earned a Marketing degree from the University of Connecticut and has worked in the corporate setting for companies like Aetna, OLM Web Hosting and Aptar, an international plastic injection molding company. Running her own successful graphic/web/marketing company for over 15 years, Zinelle’s knowledge to create brand identities, marketing strategies and market analysis, enables clients to understand and achieve their marketing goals. She keeps current with all newly developing marketing channels and her experiences and connections have proven invaluable for developing and marketing Pakayak.

An avid volleyball player, Zinelle loves to kayak, canoe, sail (anything to be on the water), hike, bike, run, boogie board and travel. Most of all, she’s a nature lover. “Z” is happiest when she’s outside experiencing nature in its most pristine state.

In keeping with all things natural, she’s currently perfecting her gluten-free bread and natural sunscreen recipes much to the delight of Team Pakayak.
