Meet Your Pocket Partners

Mae Claire Cosico

Mae Claire Cosico

Founder & CEO

I am the founder and very first Pocket Partner. In the midst of all the data-driven algorithms and analytics involved in small business and digital marketing, I am an artist and storyteller at heart.

Before starting My Pocket Partner, I hopped around all types of jobs related to marketing, social media, SEO, website development, design, PR, and sales (Heck, I even had a license to sell life and health insurance at one point!) until I really settled into my position as a project manager for a digital marketing agency. I was able to gain even more marketing experience in other niche industries such as food, beauty, entertainment, technology, medical, health, and real estate.

I am the Co-Founder and COO for My Pocket Partner. For the last 4 years, I have dedicated my time in corporate logistics with one of the world’s largest retail companies and building start-up facilities from the bottom-up. After having a taste of the corporate world, I’m determined to create something of great value that will allow me to choose how and when I want to work.

I pride myself on my abilities in leadership, strategy, team-building, and producing data-driven results while creating strong organizational infrastructures. Critical thinking and problem-solving are my favorite aspects of business development. My determination in seeing something through from start to finish is unrivaled.

Caroline Hess

Partner & Paid Media Specialist

I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2018 and have been building my career in marketing ever since. After serving as the Chief Operating Officer for NXTFactor, I started my own creative marketing agency, True Blue Creatives.

Our Official Partner

True Blue Creatives opened in 2020 with the goal of helping businesses of all sizes reach their full potential. My Pocket Partner works hand-in-hand with TBC to recommend services that we believe will maximize our clients’ growth. Through branding, digital marketing, website development, and paid ads, TBC’s team is a one-stop shop for businesses to grow their brand and customer base. http://truebluecreatives.com/


Josephine Tanopo

Web Developer & Designer

I am a graphic designer based out of Southern New Jersey and I’m here to bring your creative ideas into reality! I specialize in illustration, graphical design, and web design and have experience in animation and interactive design. I’m capable of producing a variety of design styles ranging from cute hand-drawn illustrations to marketing materials for corporate-style businesses. I am always open to new creative projects and expanding my skills and knowledge.

I am a second-generation Filipina and grew up with conservative parents who have always wanted me to pursue a career in the medical field. Whenever I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would always confidently answer with “I want to be an artist!”

Yumi Tsui

Project Manager

Hello, Yumi here! Originally born in Hong Kong but raised in Vancouver, Canada since I was 3 years old. My pronouns are she/her. I have a huge love for animals – hence why I have 4 dogs at home! My career background was mainly in Veterinary Technology which I did for 11 years and also an educational background in HR Management as I always wanted to tap into business.

I had a fair share of the 9-5 lifestyle, but after doing that for over 10 years, I soon realized I had to take matters into my own hand. This is where my path in entrepreneurship began. My biggest goal in life is to make a difference and to be able to change my family’s legacy to leave an impact on others’ lives. Outside of My Pocket Partner, I’m a Virtual Assistant – also known as a jill of all trades and super excited to officially be working as an Project Manager for My Pocket Partner!
