She is the head of consumer communications, who oversees the worldwide marketing activities of Nokia, a company dominated mostly by men and and of Finnish nationality.
Pinay beauty Soriano, used to teached Medieval History to her Alma Mater, Ateneo far from what she graduated - Legal Management while doing advertising work at the same time.

Soriano .stays in Finland with her Filipino husband who works works with a Finnish advertising firm and their seven-year old son.

The idea is to make them relax.” and “In a Manila mall, truthfully, I’d never be able to let go of my son.

She's hoping to win another 2 tournaments this year and her younger sister Allana, age 3, is also showing interest in the same sport.
