Connecting You to What Matters

“The most important things in life are the connections you make with others.” ― Tom Ford


My clients hire me because they're interested in far more than selling products or showcasing a beautiful website. They care about connecting with people.

When you work with me, I'll ask questions that get to the heart of who you are and why your organization exists. As I explore your relationships with clients and communities, we'll uncover insights and solutions together. Once I understand your journey, I'll guide you through creating or refining your brand. You'll learn to communicate in new ways—sharing, listening, and responding to build the genuine connections that will help you grow.

About Me

Ericka Lozano-Buhl, Founder of Mixto Communications

I'm Ericka Lozano-Buhl, founder of Mixto Communications. Before I started my own company, I spent more than two decades working in government, higher education, and nonprofits. I was a Type A workaholic and I enjoyed every minute of it.

When my daughter was born three years ago, I experienced a seismic shift in my priorities. Being home for dinner and spending weekends together as a family became incredibly important. I loved my career, but I realized that I couldn't have the life I wanted while working for someone else. As my maternity leave ended in November 2014, I launched Mixto Communications. Returning to my job as Digital Strategy Director for AARP California while juggling a side hustle, an infant, marriage, and four pets was hard, but I've never regretted it.

Four months later, I took a buyout package from my employer and officially became my own full-time boss. Since then, I've worked with nonprofits, startups, and businesses across the country to create marketing and communications strategies that connect with clients and community. One of my longtime passions is helping people find the work they were meant to do, so I also write professional profiles for select clients exploring career change or advancement.
