I am excited to join the board of directors of the Latino Cultural Arts Center (LCAC)! I believe that my background and professional experience will be an asset and will support our mission! I grew up in the vibrant Latino community of Santa Fe, NM where I developed my appreciation for diverse communities and cultures to include history, storytelling, and artistic expressions in a variety of forms. My upbringing in a multicultural household, which also hosted international students including from Latin America, provided me with invaluable exposure to diverse cultures and my affinity for giving back to the community. My professional career, which started in the nonprofit sector at the El Pomar Foundation, provided me with the skillset of program management and relationship building while it also encouraged me to be civically engaged and an active volunteer and community steward. Over the last decade, I have had the opportunity to serve on a variety of boards and volunteer with some amazing organizations doing great things. Additionally, I earned an MBA with an emphasis in real estate and finance and currently work in process automation where I own the strategy, business process analyses, solution design, and the development of high-value automations across departments. While my primary work is automation focused, I seek out opportunities to leverage my real estate and finance interests and skills both within and outside of my career. I am excited for the opportunity to collaborate with the executive director, the board or directors, and community partners to activate adaptive real estate assets and advance the goal of building a Cultural Campus in Denver.
I believe that my ability to build relationships, to think strategically, and my detail-oriented approach to evaluating challenges and opportunities, paired with my technical skills, will add value to the work of this organization and the impact it has and will have in the greater Denver community.
