Marketing & Communications Coordinator

Nedine Yagan-Veltre


Nedine has joined the UVC team to lead their digital marketing initiatives and outbound communications. This includes writing our two newsletters, curating and managing UVC’s social media channels, and working with our partner organizations.

Nedine has been a lifelong champion of Upstate New York with a desire to share the diverse opportunities available. She was born and raised in Syracuse and now lives in the Capital District after attending college at SUNY Albany. She has over 10 years of experience in sales and marketing, having worked in the banking industry and eventually moving into advertising sales. Currently, she also owns and operates a small business, Grate Expectations, born from a love of entertaining. Grate Expectations was founded in November 2019 and is a catering business that specializes in cheese and charcuterie “graze” boards. Grate Expectations offers corporate gifting, large event grazing tables, and platters for small gatherings that are as much of a treat as they are a conversation starter. Nedine’s prior work experience coupled with her ambition to become an entrepreneur gave her the confidence to start and operate this business full time amidst the pandemic.

In her free time, she enjoys live music, exploring the latest neighborhood hotspot, and traveling. She is currently planning her upcoming wedding in the fall with her fiance, Vince.
