Summary

I am knowledgeable of California Community College policies, guidelines, and regulations as well as the development of PR functions of mass media outlets in English and Spanish. I am fluent in Spanish, experienced in supervising personnel, skilled at handling multiple tasks simultaneously, and oversee programs' enrollment and state funding. I have launched formal partnerships with multi-million dollars corporations generating funds to programs. In a two-year period I secured over $60,000 from individuals, private donors, foundations, and corporations. I have generated enrollment and promoted visibility of classes and programs. I have gained familiarity while working with special populations that have diverse needs.
