Jurado began her career at A+E Networks as Senior Director of International Content Sales for LATAM and USH, with oversight of A+E Networks International’s off net television sales to basic and pay cable entities, as well as new media platforms such as SVOD and AVOD.

Prior to joining A+E Jurado served as Vice President of Sales and Business Development at Cisneros Media Distribution (CMD). She also served as Vice President of Sales & Distribution, Latin America and U.S. Hispanic, for BBC Studios.
