As a highly energetic, graduate with honors in political science from Florida Atlantic University, with experience in various fields including public relations and community organizing, my objective is to contribute my highest degree of motivation and commitment to reach the goals of a business, non-profit, academic or governmental institution.
I am multicultural, fully bilingual (Spanish) and posses excellent teamwork, cross-functional and communications skills. I have been responsible for community relations and services for the Executive Office of Mayor Vince Gray. I offer three years of extensive experience in the drafting of franchise contracts and operations manuals during my tenure at Franchises & Strategies. I gained a great deal of marketing and event organizational experience as a contributing member in the "Discover Colombia through Its Heart" international campaign. I have chaired and managed grass roots advocacy groups such the D.C. Latino Caucus, the Fund for the Public Interest and the Latino Action Coalition.
In addition to being capable of quickly grasping new concepts, I am highly literate in software programs such as Microsoft Office Suite, photo/video/audio editing programs (Photoshop, Power Director, Adobe Audition), and expanding into web design – Adobe Creative Suite 5. I am presently looking to work for an institution in a communications position.
