Yvette’s background, cooking expertise and high quality content made her a great fit for Quaker support, along with her social metrics/audience being within our guardrails. It was great to partner with her! I appreciated that she did a nice job incorporating relevant key messages and always read the influencer briefs thoroughly, which I really appreciate. You guys are the best and I appreciate how seriously you both took this role and how quickly Yvette turned around content when we were working against tough deadlines.
—Madeline Taber, Fleishman Hillard, Senior Account Executive (Quaker)
Yvette was the perfect fit with her food, family and cultural background to showcase how she and her son turn it into her own! Seemed like she would be exactly the type of mom and chef that would align with our brand as well as Pillsbury! Everything went well.
—Charles Weber, Talent Manager, Meredith Corporation (Pillsbury)
Yvette’s audience matched with Bumble Bee’s target audience. Her previous content seemed like a great fit for Bumble Bee. Yvette was a good partner for the project because of her high quality content and an engaged audience. She had some of the most engaging content. Yvette went above and beyond our agreed upon social sharing agreement and shared multiple pins for each recipe further amplifying her content. We appreciated Yvette incorporating her unique and ownable stories from her life into her content.
—Brandon Smith, Senior Account Executive, Fleishman-Hillard (Bumble Bee)
“Yvette is a gem! We’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with her for several Toyota campaigns over the years and her content is always impeccable. She was one of our first influencer collaborators years back and it was an instant connection given she’s a Toyota owner herself. We’ve been able to work together to create content that is authentic, engaging and heartfelt. Most recently, Yvette helped us liven up a virtual program by guiding a cooking demonstration for a large group. She planned, prepared and delivered. Not only was the recipe delicious, but she was helpful to all who asked questions and reassured the group that the most important thing to do in the kitchen is have fun. We look forward to collaborating with her again.”
—Jessica Peraza, Account Director, Allison+Partners (Toyota)

The way she incorporates her life and history into her recipes was wonderful; and her recipes are like traditional Mexican recipes with a twist. We just loved what she creates instantly. The client was looking for experienced chefs that would create original recipes but it still felt homely, like you could recreate the recipes at home, which is exactly what Yvette does. Her recipes are accessible to and for anyone.Yvette was super professional. She fulfilled any request from the client. We never had to chase her down for her recipes. She was always timely. Her writing and pictures were always professional. She made our jobs easier. We loved working with Yvette. She was phenomenal and we will definitely work with her again whenever we have the chance.”

When we did a deep dive into possible partners, Yvette rose to the top as someone who aligned with brand objectives and was able to create beautiful and engaging content. For the multiple campaigns we’ve worked with Yvette on, she has been great at being flexible with brand requests while also being collaborative and honest about what she believes will resonate with her audience.”

For brands looking to partner with a credible, savvy content partner, I highly recommend Yvette and her fabulous Muy Bueno media platforms.”

Yvette was a good partner because she could genuinely and authentically speak to her personal love for the brand. She was great—she delivered the key messaging and themes requested in a personable way. When faced with criticism from her following she was willing to work with the brand in sharing messaging that would address those comments.

We chose Yvette because we love her content – it’s beautiful, relevant, fresh and she brings a unique perspective to the food influencer space. At SPPR, we also make sure diverse voices are represented through our work, and being a Latina myself, I felt it was important to include Yvette in our work with Alden’s Organic, a brand who’s core value is providing ice cream products for all. Yvette was very professional and thoughtful, which the content she delivered showcased. She incorporated her family into a fun and authentic backyard moment that was on-brief and vital to the campaign’s performance.”
