Ms. Paturzo brought over 30 years in media planning and buying to Online Trading Academy when she joined the team in mid 2013. Starting in the business
fresh from college and never looking back, she has extensive experience in the industry.
Ms. Paturzo has worked at iconic Southern California advertising agencies such as keye/donna/pearlstein, DMB&B, Team One, TBWA/Chiat Day and Bates USA,
and has done campaigns for Microsoft, Sea World, Lexus USA, Sony Playstation and Hyundai Motor America. Her most memorable experience was working on the
1997 re-launch of Apple Computer, having planned the media campaign for the “Think Different” campaign with Steve Jobs and TBWA/Chiat Day’s Lee Clow.
More recently, she has worked intensively in direct marketing in the for-profit education arena – specifically for schools such as Corinthian and Heald Colleges.
Ms. Paturzo lends her expertise in all areas of media and marketing, for traditional media planning and buying, including (but not limited to) television, radio,
print, online and alternative forms.
She is a proud Southern Californian native, having grown up in the Los Angeles and San Diego areas her whole life. She credits her “advertising blood” to
her dad Richard Vaughn, retired worldwide director of research and planning for Foote, Cone & Belding/LA. Her dad lives with her family - husband,
Peter, daughters Marli and Franny – in Trabuco Canyon. Nan is an avid runner and a ninja in-training, taking Tang Soo Do karate with her younger
