I am the eldest of five children, born to a teenage immigrant mother from Guayaquil, Ecuador, my mentors are Dolores Garay of Garay Consulting and my tia Terry J. Soto of About Marketing Solutions, Inc.
And I make a killer Seco de Pollo.
what is your current, past or ideal job title?
I have worked as a residential counselor at a level 12 group home, primarily working with boys 13-17. I have volunteered at Boys and Girl Club in Burbank, CA, Cambria Youth Athletic Association in Cambria, CA and The Women's Community Clinic in San Francisco, CA.
I am currently redirecting my focus from direct service to fundraising/grant writing/event planning. This past October I produced my first fund raiser. "That's Vagtastic!" was a vaudeville extravaganza feature local performance artists from the San Francisco area. The benefit was for The Women's Community Clinic, providing free sexual/reproductive health care clinic for women on site as well as outreach services. I was a volunteer at The Clinic as a Client Service Coordinator and where my passion for sexual and reproductive care/rights flourished.
I am looking for work in the New York area, focusing on Women, Latinos, Youth or LGBTQ communities.
what languages do you speak?
what countries have you lived in?
LA. If you've ever lived there you know it is it's own country. In fact, it's own planet.
