Meet Your Pocket Partners
Mae Claire Cosico
Founder, CEO, & Strategist
With over 5+ years in the digital marketing industry and working with clients like Chubby Cattle, Rice & Shine Show, and The X Pot, I am the founder/CEO and act as the social media strategist & creative director for the My Pocket Partner team.
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.Read More
So how did I get into this crazy world of starting small businesses? Well, my first high school t-shirt business venture, BABY♡DOLL. was a flop. I got my first real taste of entrepreneurship when I started 愛Ichigo Latte Made & Butler Cafe in high school. After closing that business, I went for a 6-year Doctor of Pharmacy degree at the University of the Sciences. Although I spent most of my days fuming over chemistry equations and drug interactions, my heart had always belonged to telling stories.
I switched to the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Business program while attending an acting conservatory and working as a freelance singer and model. This strengthened my ability to connect with audiences while gaining experience in the marketing industry.
Co-Founder, COO, & Account Manager
I am the co-founder and COO of My Pocket Partner and typically act as the project manager and account manager for the My Pocket Partner team.
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.Read More
Additionally, I have pursued a variety of small business ventures with the founder of My Pocket Partner. Since I have a heavy interest in the digital and electronic arts, I hope to pursue my passion of becoming a voiceover artist and taking on a larger role in the e-Sports community. Under the name Ace0fClubs0001, I have amassed over 1 million views being involved in several animation/video game voiceover collaborations, and have been included as a top finalist in local East Coast Tekken tournaments.
Partner & Paid Media Specialist
After working with the founder at another agency, I am a partner of MPP and generally act as a general marketing consultant and paid media specialist to help support My Pocket Partner’s agency clients.
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/
Web Developer & Designer
I am a designer based out of Southern New Jersey who helps support My Pocket Partner in bringing its creative ideas to reality! I also made the website you are looking at right now.
I specialize in illustration, graphic 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!”
It wasn’t until I entered middle school when I found out about the digital design industry and was determined to be apart of it. During high school, I learned there were a few different paths I could take with graphic design and struggled with what I wanted to specialize in. I decided to go to college for graphic and interactive media design, graduated at the top of my class and earned a Bachelor of Science in Media Design. I’ve since grown into a creative professional and currently work as the Digital Communications Manager at the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing leisurely video games, working out, watching anime or trash TV and spending time with close friends.
Hello, I’m Lanie! I am Vietnamese born, but raised in America for all my life! My pronouns are she/her. I support My Pocket Partner’s clients as a content manager.
I graduated from Full Sail University with a B.S. in Film Production in 2019. When I am clocked out of My Pocket Partner, I am designing or working on products for my small business, ShiningStar.Co. (https://www.instagram.com/shiningstar.co/).
I wanted to give marketing a try, as I’ve experienced a bit of marketing with my small business. I’ve always loved meeting new people and building new networks with others because of marketing and social media. I can’t wait to see what My Pocket Partner has for me in the future!
Graphic Designer & Video Editor
Heyaa, I’m Francheska! A passionate creative from the Philippines. I believe designing isn’t just about pretty blings but also ✨shiny ✨ impactful messages. I am My Pocket Partner’s social media graphic designer.
Through the years of loving design at the corner and putting marketing management in the spotlight as my education, who would’ve thought those two opposite directions met midway through my life and brought me to pursue what I love the most — design and marketing.
I also owe it to the people who believed in me and trust in what I do and what I am capable of, and through that, I can push through challenges and be where I am today.
You can usually find me on my Instagram @chescake.ai for my passion projects and design content, so see you around socials!
